About the Author

University of Victoria, Wellington, New Zealand


'John Pratt has long understood the importance of this inter-disciplinary approach to our understanding of public discourses on crime and punishment, and this new text on penal populism is yet another example of his ability to put together, and then convincingly apply, an extensive intellectual tool kit... This is an important, acessible international perspective on the rise of penal populism and surely deserves a place in every academic library' - Mike Ryan, University of Greenwich, Punishment and Society

'Pratt's book is a concise text that will appeal to both the academic and criminal justice professional. Its particular value lies in the accessible form with which it presents its case' - Jamie Bennett, Security Group
