Review quote

"Pamela Ugwudike and Peter Raynor have assembled a remarkable collection of works spanning theory, research, policy and practice on an issue that anyone who works in the criminal justice system is faced with daily. Offender compliance is perhaps the greatest challenge before for those who deal with offenders whether it is at the therapeutic level or the level of control and the dispensing of criminal justice sanctions. The topics covered are diverse yet thematic bringing to the forefront the recent thinking on compliance with practical suggestions on enhancing offender compliance. This book serves not only as an introduction to the topic but also as an essential reference for years to come." - James Bonta, Director, Corrections Research, Public Safety Canada "This is a high quality collection of essays on key dimensions of current debates about offenders' compliance (or non-compliance) with sentences, especially with Probation supervision. The issue is important not only to theory and practice around rehabilitation, but because of the multiple negative effects of people being sent or returned to prison for breaches of requirements. It is also highly topical as we move into an uncertain era in which large numbers of offenders on community sentences will be supervised by private and third sector providers rather the Probation Service. The book contains original contributions by many of the leading international writers on offender rehabilitation, including Sir Anthony Bottoms, whose writing has been central to the recent growth of interest in compliance. It contains both new theoretical insights and accounts of new empirical work. It also contains welcome chapters on international developments and on compliance by specific groups of offenders, including women and young people. It represents a major contribution to the development and dissemination of thinking and knowledge about offender compliance, and I am very pleased to recommend it." - Professor Mike Maguire, Emeritus Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Cardiff University, UK "The book is easily navigable with four sections divided into broadly policy and what is meant by compliance; offender motivation and the relationship between the key agents, practitioner and offender; evidence and developments in offender research and the contextualisation of compliance within a diverse demographic population. The strength of the book is that there are links and connections between and within all of these four strands and the structure of the book encourages the reader to explore these interconnections [...] Practitioners wishing to acquaint themselves with the latest thinking and research outcomes will find plenty on which to reflect." - Euro Vista Journal
