Sentencing and Criminal Justice Reviews

'Sentencing is one of the key parts of the Criminal Justice System. Ashworth's scholarly exposition of the context of sentencing, and of the many factors which influence the sentences that are passed, offers a very readable account of this complex subject. It is a 'must-read' text for all students of sentencing.' Peter Hungerford-Welch, City University London
'Andrew Ashworth's Sentencing and Criminal Justice is the indispensable text for all students of English sentencing law, policy and practice, as well as an excellent introduction to the range of custodial and non-custodial sanctions and measures available to the English courts. This sixth edition is meticulously researched, well organised and highly readable, and will reward both readers who are new to its subject matter and scholars wishing to update their knowledge in a rapidly changing field.' Gwen Robinson, Reader in Criminal Justice, University of Sheffield
'This excellent volume gives the reader a critical, scholarly and up-to-date analysis of sentencing and criminal justice in England and Wales in a comparative context. This latest edition contains important new chapters on civil preventive and other ancillary orders as well as 'the punitive state'. A comprehensive yet highly accessible text which has become an essential source book for both academics and students.' Anne-Marie McAlinden, Queen's University Belfast
'... authoritative guide through the minefield, asking (and answering) important questions, not only about the law, but also about priorities, principles and practice. Students will find that this book will really help them to shape their own ideas and thoughts.' Nicola Padfield, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge
