The contributors are twelve distinguished criminologists who together advance our understanding of the ethical and societal questions underlying crime prevention.
Contributors: Ron Clarke, Adam Crawford, Antony Duff, David Garland, Tim Hope, Richard Jones, John Kleinig, Clifford Shearing, David J. Smith, Richard Sparks, Andrew von Hirsch and Alison Wakefield.
