AbstractExtract: Though most current politicians would never acknowledge it, criminological research points to the fact that Australia was a less violent society at the end of the twentieth century than it was at the conclusion of the nineteenth or even the eighteenth centuries. To be sure, property crimes have increased dramatically from these past times but many forms of violence- including serious assault and homicide- appear to have been more prevalent in Australia's formative years.
