This third volume of his trilogy, deploying high-level experience and scholarship, brings us up to date with the past three years, known to many as the Age of Howard. * The Sunday Times *
...highly topical book. * The Daily Telegraph *
the scope is wide in as much as the situation in Britain is studied alongside legislation and attitudes in the United States...a comprehensive guide to current thinking on both sides of the Atlantic - academic in spirit but written with a clarity of detail and analysis that makes it quite accessible to the general reader. * Prison Writing *
The abiding merit of 'Responses to Crime', Lord Windlesham's substantial and elegantly written account of the penal history of Britain from 1948 to 1994, is that students in the twenty first century will be able to turn to it as an authoritative source of information...There is more than enough material here and elsewhere to encourage Lord Windlesham to write a fourth volume covering the last five years of this century...The twenty-first-century students of criminal justice and the penal system will then be fully equiped. * Times Literary Supplement *
This book, like its predecessor volumes, is eminently worth reading for those interested in criminal policy, and the political processes which shape it. The book provides much detail, but it is precisely the details that make it so interesting. * Andrew von Hirsch in The Law Quarterly Review *
The third volume in Lord Windlesham's acclaimed work has as its theme the impact of public opinion on the criminal justice system...distinguished work. * Parliamentary Affairs *
