about

Criminal records are essential to the smooth running of the criminal justice system, but are overlooked and taken for granted. Terry Thomas considers their uses within the criminal justice system and beyond--especially the growth of their use for pre-employment screening via the Criminal Records Bureau. This book also considers future developments and the impact that transfering criminal records across international borders will have.
TERRY THOMAS is Reader in Criminal Justice Studies, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK. His publications include Criminal Records: State, Citizen and the Politics of Protection, The Police and Social Work, Privacy and Social Services, Sex Crime: Sex Offending and Society and Policing Europe: Cooperation, Conflict and Control.
