Reviews

This stimulating and thought-provoking read is the first volume in a new 'Debating Law' series. ... these essays provide a critical but accessible introduction to the current debate. The merit of this work is that it is not simply an informative outline of theories and practices. As a tool of learning, the dialectical structure is excellent. Both authors make useful references to theoreticians, practices and case studies, and Hoyle provides an extensive bibliography. A must read for the student of criminology, law and sociology, we can eagerly await the next in the series. Christine Baker JUSTICE Journal July 2011 This new and interesting series is an opportunity for expert scholars to offer contrasting perspectives on contemporary issues which will be welcomed by the thoughtful undergraduate criminologist. There are many useful references and the 'Debating Law' series will be an additional invaluable source for the inquisitive criminologist who will always be on the look-out for some answers...even though ti is clear from the finely balanced arguments of both schools of thought , that the debate will continue for a long time to come!
