Review Quotes
Jonathan Evans, University of South Wales
‘‘This book addresses the key theoretical, policy and practice issues that inform multi-agency working at a time of acute austerity in criminal justice and related public services.’’
Iolo Madoc-Jones, Glyndwr University
“This fully updated book will be an invaluable resource to criminology students, and those training to become police or probation officers.”
Gwen Robinson, University of Sheffield
''There can be no doubt that multi-agency working has established itself as a key feature of the contemporary criminal justice landscape. This timely and accessible collection will be an invaluable resource for both established and trainee criminal justice practitioners, as well as students of criminal justice and social policy.''
Anne Worrall, Keele University
'This second edition is far more than an update. A new focus and numerous new contributors make this a "state-of-the-art" resource on multi-agency work in criminal justice."
John Deering, University of South Wales
“In times of considerable change and upheaval within the criminal justice system, this edited collection brings considerable insight into one of its contemporary phenomena, multi-agency working. The book successfully engages in practice and theoretical debate, locating multi-agency working in theories of late modernity and neo-liberalism.”
Lawrence Burke, Liverpool John Moores University
“This updated edition by Pycroft and Gough chart the key developments since 2010 which have shaped the governance of the penal field through the creation of new networks and partnership arrangements. This unique collection provides an engaging and thought-provoking lens that enhances contemporary understanding of the policies that underpin such work. I would wholeheartedly recommend Multi-Agency Working in Criminal Justice: Theory, Policy and Practice to students, practitioners, scholars and policy-makers everywhere.”
