'..This book sheds valuable light on the darker side of the operation of the act in Britain' Steven Greer, Fortnight
'Written in an accessible style, this should be an invaluable reference tool for lawyers, students and human rights campaigners' Tribune

'This book should be compulsory reading for anyone concerned with injustice in Britain' Catholic Herald

'An important and long-overdue text ... that deserves to be read widely and should stand as a clarion call for all those interested in racism, the state and contemporary policing to incorporate the Irish far more centrally in their analyses'
Paul Connolly, Capital & Class

'The first systematic study of the operation of the PTA' Harry Potter, LCCJ Newsletter

'The critique is precise and the arguments are clear and irrefutable, a guarantee that this book will not be read by those whose votes ensure the Act's continued retention' Books Ireland

'This book deserves fulsome praise for challenging the academic silence surrounding this area and for reminding us that it is possible to conduct rigorous, scholarly and inteventionist work without becoming dependent or involoved with the managerial gatekeepers of the criminal justice system' Journal of Law and Society
