Foundations for Offender Management: theory law and policy for contemporary practice, is an essential and thought-provoking read that could benefit students pursuing a career in criminal justice or those involved in delivering criminal justice interventions. The book provides an uncomplicated, secure base from which those embarking on a criminal justice career can explore the workings of the criminal justice system in general, and the probation service in England and
Wales particular. A useful tool, the book is an inspiring yet incompromising voice of wisdom that stirs the imagination of practitioners, moving them from inertia to action, as agents of criminal
justice and advocates for social justice.
