This chapter covers the changing conceptions of crime and social order in correlation with the character and quality of everyday life in contemporary Britain. It presents elements of change that involve notions of durability and persistence. The contemporary landscapes of sources of harm, uncertainty, or tribulation that attend people’s everyday lives are diverse and bear upon different lives and different habitats in very distinct and unequal ways. As measured by victimization surveys and other means, fear of crime always had as its primary object threats to personal safety in public space. The chapter also considers the contentions surrounding the notion of security and public safety.
