About the Author

Sarah Turnbull is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Criminology, University of Oxford. She has published articles on punishment in Canada in the British Journal of Criminology, Punishment & Society and the Canadian Journal of Law & Society.


Sarah Turnbull's book is an important and timely qualitative addition to the field of law and justice ... Turnbull masterfully explains the intersections between the Canadian federal parole system and race, gender, Aboriginal status and identity without oversimplifying this complex issue. Parole in Canada is a highly accessible text that should find its way into every law, social justice and multiculturalism course.
