The crime and disorder occurring in North American resource-based boomtowns has captured the public’s interest since the 1849 California gold rush. The rapid growth of communities that emerged in rural areas across the globe since the oil and gas boom started after 2000 has also drawn considerable media interest, especially in terms of the disorder that occurs in some of these places, which has been described by boomtown residents as a “human tornado.” This chapter introduces the book, and briefly describes boomtown effects, which are the social ills that accompany a boom, from an increase in sexually transmitted infections to crime. While conditions in the oil patch or mines are safer and more worker-friendly today, the social ills occurring in some boomtowns are very similar to their historical counterparts as newcomers travel from around the nation to grab their share of the American dream.
