'This is an excellent book which reflects not just the authors' impressive knowledge of theory and research but their commitment to work constructively and creatively at the interfaces between theory, research, policy and practice. Far from offering a sterile and uncritical administrative criminology, this book meets head-on Nils Christie's challenge that criminology be 'problem-raising' as well as 'problem-solving' for the state and its agencies of crime control. It deserves to be widely read by practitioners, managers, policy-makers, students and academics alike.'

'This is an impressively current and relevant introduction to criminology in its applied form by some leading experts in their fields. A fitting tribute to Brian Williams (who was concerned always about the impact of criminal justice and penal policies and practice on both victims and offenders), this book fills a significant gap in criminological literature and is destined to become a core text for students of criminology and, hopefully for policy makers and practitioners too.'
