oa Acta Criminologica: Southern African Journal of Criminology - The nature and extent of crime in Umlazi and KwaMashu
The eminent French sociologist Emile Durkheim stated nearly a hundred years ago that crime promotes social solidarity in a community as a result of its members joining forces to fight a common threat. Many social scientists have subsequently questioned this view. They contend that the heterogeneity of modem urban populations, in particular, and the geographic mobility that is experienced today are not conducive to the formation of a unified response to crime.
