Description

Product description Sir Leon Radzinowicz is one of the key figures in the development of criminology in the twentieth century. This account of the development of criminology intertwines his personal narrative as a criminologist with the progression of criminology itself. His experience gained from a career which has spanned 70 years since the 1920s, offers a profound overview of how the understanding of crime and criminals, of criminal justice systems and penology has changed, and of the tensions and dilemmas these pose for democratic societies. Review "[The book] is one of great distinction, scholarship and wit. ...a pleasure to read and which, itself, is a primary source of evidence from which much can be learnt." -"Punishment and Society
