Professor Downes pinpoints the crucial theoretical issues regarding sentencing, imprisonment, and decarceration and uses original and rich data that addresses these issues in the Netherlands and in England. In persuasivelydemonstrating real effects of specific penal policies. Professor Downes is able to address real possibilites for specific penal change.
