Towards Decarceration

in Whose Justice? The Law and the Left, Edinburgh, Scottish Left Review Press.

Whose Justice? The Law and the Left is not simply a critique of the current state of law and justice. Drawing upon an array of perspectives and international experiences, the contributors lay out a set of ideas and proposals to resolve and ameliorate the current deficiences and injustices. In doing so, they cast new light on some of the rather tired and hide-bound traditional approaches of the left to law and justice. Consequently the political parties contesting the 2007 elections would do well to consider the proposals and conclusions of Whose Justice? The Law and the Left if they genuinely want to create the best small country in the world to live in.
