Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
'A marvelous British text-reference that comprehensively introduces the penal system in England and Wales, not only for students and practitioners, but for all who are increasingly concerned about the morality and the future of penal systems worldwide' - "Reference and Research Book News". 'The authors appear to do an excellent job of describing the criminal justice system of England, and how the penal system fits into, and is affected by it' - "Journal of Contemporary Criminal Justice".Now fully revised, this highly successful textbook provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the penal system in England and Wales. Michael Cavadino and James Dignan examine all aspects of the penal process, including details of the recent dramatic developments which have made the punishment of offenders and the escalating 'penal crisis' one of the most hotly debated issues of the day. They also outline the theories which purport to justify and explain the practice of punishment and consider their value in helping us understand the penal system. The Second Edition presents a stimulating account of the current crisis. The authors argue that the penal system not only suffers from severe practical problems but is morally indefensible, and they highlight the radical reforms that are urgently needed. Throughout the book, comparisons are drawn with other penal systems from around the world.
