    Policing, environmental protection, and tax administration have much more in common than practitioners in these areas often recognize. In this book, Sparrow draws out remarkable parallels in the ways these professions are adapting to meet their current challenges, as they reject their traditional reliance on retrospective, case-by-case, after-the-fact enforcement. Rather than perpetuating their dependence on processes, procedures, and "coverage," these professions are each developing new capacities for analyzing important patterns of noncompliance, prioritizing risks, and designing intelligent interventions using a much broader range of tools. Sparrow extracts the essence of the transformations underway, explores the critical implications for information management, and lays out the issues that need resolution before the emerging compliance strategies can reach maturity.

    How should we deal with societal ills such as crime, poverty, pollution, terrorism, & corruption? This book argues that control or mitigation of 'bad' things involves distinctive patterns of thought & action which turn out to be broadly applicable across a range of human endeavors, & which need to be better understood. It demonstrates that an explicit focus on the 'bads,' rather than on the countervailing 'goods' (safety, prosperity, environmental stewardship), can provide rich opportunities for surgically efficient & effective interventions--an operational approach termed 'the sabotage of harms.'
