About this item

Just as Canada’s population has changed in the past four decades, so has its prison population. The increasing diversity among prisoners raises important questions about how we punish those who break the law.Parole in Canada is the first book to explore how concerns about aboriginality, gender, and the multicultural ideal of "diversity" have been interpreted and used to alter parole policy and practice. Using the Parole Board of Canada as a case study, this book shows how some offender differences are selectively included in conditional release decision making, while the structures, practices, and power arrangements that would enable fundamental change remain unaltered.
