Moving Probation Forward: Evidence, Arguments and PracticeEdited by Wing Hong Chui and Mike Nellis Moving Probation Forward: Evidence, Arguments and Practice is a new core text which provides a much needed account of issues surrounding probation in the changing context of criminal justice policy and management in the UK.

Drawing on a range of current expertise in the field, the book covers various key topic areas in probation in an approachable and user-friendly way. It also advances theories, practice, methodologies and policy analyses relating to contemporary probation practice. Topics include: theories of crime and punishment, the 'what works' debate, risk assessment and other principles of probation practice, desistance, enforcement, electronic monitoring, and human rights issues.

This book not only serves as an introductory textbook for students of probation studies, criminology and law, but also as a crucial reference source for training officers, managers and practitioners in the field of probation and criminal justice.
