520    Shopping and Crimedraws on criminology, behavioural 
       economics and marketing to help understand retail crime as
       a cultural phenomenon. Shopping is now the largest 
       consumer leisure activity, and this has led to an 
       exponential rise in the levels of retail crime. In this 
       topical volume Professor Bamfield analyses important new 
       datasets on employee theft and shoplifting to show the 
       nature of the problem, its origins and possible solutions.
       Crime prevention is explored as a management issue, using 
       criminomics, a new concept based on commercial realities 
       rather than maximizing arrests. This emphasises 
       communications and persuasion within organisations, 
       supported by a web of collaborative projects between 
       retailers, police and other crime agencies
