An introductory section provides theoretical and empirical perspectives on vandalism. Chapters describe the role of research in designing against vandalism, psycho-social definitions, and new orientations toward depreciative behavior. Empirical studies of an urban youth subculture, characteristics of (railhead vandalism, effectiveness of trailside sign texts, and a brochure on reducing vandalism are presented. Another section provides perspectives on vandalism policy and prevention by urban managers, including responses by transit agencies in two major metropolitan areas and responses by various communities toward graffiti and other forms of vandalism.
