Review Quotes
Prison Service Journal
“An excellent reference point for students, researchers, and practitioners and importantly offers an insight into crucial debates around each subject in addition to simple definitions. It is a highly relevant publication, with credible contributors and editors, and incredibly useful in today’s climate of multidisciplinary approaches to risk management within the criminal justice system.”
Dave Holmes | University of Ottawa
“A highly pertinent, useful, and user-friendly book. A must for personal and institutional libraries.”
Majid Yar | University of Hull, UK
“An original contribution that bridges an important gap in the criminal justice literature and reference base. This volume will be of interest to students, academics, policy makers and practitioners across multiple fields—criminology and criminal justice, social policy, social work and community justice.”
