about this item

Since 1997, the UK probation service, an integral component of criminal justice for over one hundred years, has been subject to a politically driven process of modernization and cultural transformation. This innovative book, a thorough revision of Exploring Modern Probation, explores this probation modernization by using social theories associated with Durkheim, Weber, Marx, and Foucault. Philip Whitehead combines this theoretical analysis with empirical research from interviews, which highlights challenges to, as well as support of, the politics of modernization. Unique in providing insights into what representatives of other organizations think about probation—the outside-looking-in perspective—this text will be a valuable resource for scholars and students of probation, criminology, criminal and social justice, and allied disciplines.
