Sentencing and Punishment Reviews

"This excellent new book is a particularly refreshing new edition to texts in this area and criminal justice generally...The integration of theory with practice successfully, and justifably, complicated the issues but does so in a way that is always accessible (primarily because of the clarity of language but aided by an excellent glossary of terms, chapter summaries, coherent sub-headings and helpful cross referencing." Youth Justice, August 2006 "In addition to being an invaluable guide to those attempting to navigate the complex surface of current penal policy, the book should also stimulate fresh perspectives amongst those familiar with the topography of the current penal terrain." Howard Journal, 2006 "(A) stimulating account of the role of sentencing law and penal policy in England and Wales." The Student Law Journal, December 2005 "A well-written and accessible text which provides excellent value for money." The Student Law Journal, December 2005
