The formation of a coalition government, at a time of economic crisis, is likely to prove a watershed for criminal justice. Following a review of the achievements and disappointments in criminal justice over the last thirty years, 'Where next for criminal justice?' aims to stimulate fresh thinking in criminal justice by considering the policies which need to be adopted, how they should be formed, and the principles and values which should be adopted.

Bethany E.Schmidt, University of Cambridge
“A passionate and comprehensive account of the path of travel policy has taken . . . [that] considers the political and social trends. . . . The book is an essential reference for a thorough overview of the UK justice system, past and present, and perhaps even future.”
