This book vigorously challenges the dominant academic view of ASBOs as erroneous tools of social control, and offers an alternative perspective on anti-social behaviour management which argues that ASBOs are capable of enabling a positive process of engagement among local authorities, housing professionals and residents.

She specialises in the study of anti-social behaviour management and is currently conducting research on anti-social behaviour response courts in England and Wales funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
