9780199582716: Life after Life Imprisonment (Clarendon Studies in Criminology)

This new and important title explores one of the most contentious and sensitive topics in criminal justice: the release and resettlement of life-sentenced offenders. Life after Life Imprisonment provides an in-depth analysis of the post-prison experiences of 138 discretionary life-sentenced offenders, all of whom were released from prison across England and Wales during the mid-1990s. Using accessible and engaging data the book examines key legal developments within the criminal justice system for discretionary life-sentenced offenders, explores the frontline experiences of criminal justice practitioners charged with the responsibility of supervising life-sentenced offenders and analyses the 'stories' or life narratives of a group of individuals who have committed some of the most serious crimes. The book also examines the process of recall for life-sentenced prisoners and explores key factors associated with failure in the community. This work therefore contributes to a variety of different areas of theoretical concern to legal scholars and criminologists as well as to applied areas of interest to practitioners in the field. Significantly, the book offers a major insight into how societies respond to serious crimes and identifies important elements of successful reintegration for released life-sentenced offenders.

Review:


"Students should love the book - not only is there a painstaking review of the methods employed (chapter 2), but the summary of the existing literature [...] are models of clarity, rivalling any textbook account."
-- Nicola Padfield, Punishment and Society Journal


"We get a fascinating insight into the relationships that those offenders form with those supervising them, and for the first time an offenders account of which factors might mitigate or increase the risks of reoffending."
-- Andrew Keogh, Crimeline


"accessible to anyone concerned with offending populations, resettlement, or criminological research more generally. I would definitely recommend it."
--Jennifer Sloan, Policing Journal


"This book represents a valuable contribution ot our knowledge about the resettlement of life sentence prisoners"
--Jonathan Bild, The Howard Journal


"The book is meticulously researched and the style is clear and concise throughout. It will be of interest to criminal justice students and practitioners and should be required reading for policy makers and politicians."
--Neil Hutton, Edinburgh Law Review
