A welcome update to a seminal text highlighting the continuing challenges and pressures of the contemporary criminal justice system. An important text for students, scholars and practitioners alike, and an essential reference point for policy makers. The book outlines the historical, sociological and political background to this “crisis” and offers some suggestions and best practice to achieve a just and humane penal system for the future. A must read for anyone interested in this often controversial area.
The Penal System comprehensively addresses one of the core facets of Criminology: How does society deal with those who break the law? The new edition reinvigorates the conversation about how we construct, utilise, and implement processes of punishment and social control. It is a must read for students, academics, and the wider public.
This sixth edition of The Penal System continues the tradition of incisive analysis of the state of the nation in relation to the penal system. This is a well-crafted book which gives an excellent overview of the key challenges and directions in the contemporary English and Welsh penal system.
