This text reviews the key issues and debates over criminal justice and criminal justice policy which have concerned politicians, practitioners and the public at large. Against a background in which the subject has assumed an ever increasing profile, the authors explore the ways in which the law and order agenda has shaped and changed priorities, the emergence of conflicting law and order and justice paradigms, and the impact of the law and order reforms of the 1980s and 1990s.;As well as providing an overview of recent debates and issues, the authors also present an agenda for the future, setting out a set of principles and standards against which criminal justice might be judged in the context of the modern democractic state, and which any future government may need to address as the millennium approaches.
