    Book synopsis: The Government is striving for a society based on a radical extension of opportunity, matched by a true sense of responsibility. One of the biggest barriers to achieving this vision is social exclusion, the process by which people and communities are denied the opportunity to prosper. A striking feature of socially excluded communities is their tendency to display higher-than-average crime rates with all that entails in terms of deterring investors, reducing employment opportunities and further isolating the community. This pamphlet comprises a series of specially commissioned essays by experts in a wide range of fields associated with crime, social exclusion and community building. It seeks to highlight a number of areas upon which policy must focus if the Government is to achieve its overarching aims.
