DescriptionContents

This book brings together the major findings of eleven projects funded under the 'Crime and the Criminal Justice System Initiative' by the Economic and Social Research Council in the mid-1980s. A special effort has also been made to convey the importance of the findings to a wider public. The crises which afflict our criminal justice system can only be resolved if their hard-won insights are taken up in public policy debates.
