Richard Schneider would like to thank Professor George Birrell and Alison Birrell for opening up their home and hearts to him when he came to Britain as a visiting Research Fellow at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology in 1995-1996. Without their guidance and help - including an introduction to his co-author - this work would not have taken place. Pamela Hyde, Management Division Administrator for Civil and Construction Engineering at UMIST, facilitated every stage of this research and, as a gracious host and friend, deserves a great deal of credit. Special thanks are due to Ray Catesby, former Architectural Liaison Officer, Greater Manchester Police, for allowing Richard to accompany him on many site visits throughout the city. He is most appreciative to Ray for his time, effort and endurance in putting up with too many questions. Acknowledgements also are due to Royston K. Smith, UMIST Security and General Services Manager, for assistance at various stages of this work. Richard would also like to thank Officer Sterling Keys, former Crime Prevention Officer with the City of Gainesville, Florida Police Department (presently with Boulder, Colorado's police force) for his interest in and contributions to this work and he also acknowledges the Florida CPTED Network, and in particular Dorinda Howe, for access to its mobile library. Finally but not least, Richard thanks his colleagues at the University of Florida College of Design, Construction and Planning, Department of Urban and Regional Planning, and especially Professors Ernest Bartley, James Nicholas, Earl Starnes, Jay Stein, Ruth Steiner and Paul Zwick for their encouragement and support throughout the course of the research.
Ted Kitchen would like to thank Trish Wood, Faye Revill and Anne Adderley for all their work typing and retyping drafts and experimenting with layouts. Their patience has been inexhaustible, not least with the authors. Trish also did most of the editorial work in the later phases of the process with a cheerfulness and an enthusiasm that would have been hard to match, and her willingness to keep returning to material in the constant search for improvements was a real source of encouragement. Ted would also like to thank his academic colleagues at the School of Environment and Development at Sheffield Hallam University for bearing with him while he tried to balance the task of co-authoring the book against his day-job as School Director. He would also like to thank colleagues at the School of Architecture, Construction and Planning at Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia for providing a stimulating and enjoyable environment for him during a Visiting
