(p.256) 10 Integration and Metatheoretical Concerns
Community Criminology

This chapter summarizes some of the broader purposes of the book. It then connects some of the main points highlighted with specific purposes. Further, it considers, in the very broadest terms, why this approach rather than another one? Alternative metatheoretical approaches are noted along with reasons for not adopting them. A final section looks forward. It argues that community criminologists should get out of their comfort zones, grow skill sets, become part of collaborative teams with broader analytical and theoretical foundations, and deepen their conceptual analyses. Any of these changes are likely to spawn discomfort. But if this field is to advance in terms of both its prediction and understanding capacities, there are bound to be growing pains.
