"A fact about crime and criminal justice for every week of the year - crucial when so many get their information from non-expert sources." Nic Groombridge, University of South Wales
"A highly informative approach to the study of crime and punishment presented in a concise, lively and innovative extremely useful learning resource for criminology students." Peter Joyce, Glyndwr University
"This book invites us to reflect on just how inadequately crime and punishment are explained if we fall into the trap of being seduced by dominant narratives. The wonderful criticality here serves as a superb resource for students and scholars, but also for a much wider audience of people fascinated by the subject of crime and society." Paul Taylor, University of Chester
