About this item

Desistance is a hot topic of the criminological world, but while research suggests that as offenders turn their backs on crime they often change their behavior and their sense of identity, we know relatively little about how this reforming or transforming of identity might be affected by gender, age, or ethnicity. Showcasing international research from a wide range of contributors in the field, this book investigates the roles played by these various diversity issues during desistance. By considering similarities and differences between desisting from crime and recovering from addiction, it pushes the desistance and recovery debates in novel directions, offering unique insight into experiences of change and transformation among individuals who are seeking healthier and more successful futures.
