Longman Criminology Series (October 2003)
This book is an introduction to the history of British criminal justice policy and a survey of the current debates about the British criminal justice and penal systems. It has quickly established itself as a comprehensive and user friendly introduction to the field. The book covers not just the courts, probation and prison services but also policing, crime prevention and the issues surrounding the treatment of victims by the criminal justice system.
This new edition provides a general update and revision, and records the substantial changes in criminal justice policy and legislation over the last five years, particularly those introduced by the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. There is also an entirely new chapter on crime prevention and community safety and increased coverage of young offenders, reflecting the current Government's focus.
