Chappell, D; Wilson, P
Author(s): Chappell, D; Wilson, P
Format: Practitioner, Softcover , Book
Crime, criminals and the criminal justice system continue to be at the forefront of public debate and controversy. First published in 1972, this entirely new edition of a highly regarded text examines contemporary efforts to deal with the difficult problems of crime and the treatment of criminals. This book also pays tribute to three pioneers of Australian criminology who have had an important influence on the discipline.
The contributors, all experts in their fields, include criminologists, lawyers, psychologists and other social scientists. Collectively, they make a comprehensive and authoritative appraisal of the criminal justice issues which shape action and policy in Australia. These include the emerging threat of terrorism, the expanding role of forensic criminology, and the management of dangerous offenders.
