Written in a clear, direct style, Crime, Justice and Human Rights makes an important, original and overdue contribution to the discipline by providing an accessible, comprehensive and finely nuanced overview of the law, philosophy, concept, practice and politics of human rights in crime and criminal justice ... The book is essential reading for those who wish to produce and engage in a criminology that accords primacy to the wellbeing of all individuals and the social groups to which they belong. * Jude McCulloch, Current Issues in Criminal Justice, Vol. 27 (3) *
