Crime, State and Citizen provides an unrivaled overview of UK criminal justice and penal affairs, including the need to balance the actions of the state, police, and other criminal justice services with the democratic rights and expectations of ordinary citizens. This second edition has now been updated to take into account the seismic shift that has occurred in the politics of law and order and the needs of public safety and security in the wake of both September 11 and the London bombings of July 2005, representing a watershed in the development of law and order. The book also has a new preface and foreword written by one of the UK's leading experts, Rod Morgan, in which he describes Crime State and Citizen as: ' unusually broad and penetrating analysis of criminal justice policy yoked to a deep, personal commitment to an ethical view of the proper role of the state and the rights of citizens.' This classic work resonates more strongly with its updating of crime, punishment, sentencing, policing, prison, restorative justice, and offender-based issues.
