The 40% drop in crime that occurred across the U.S. from 1991 to 2000 largely remains an unsolved mystery.

In this book, Franklin Zimring sets off in search of the New York difference through a detailed and comprehensive statistical investigation into the city's falling crime rates and possible explanations.
