Editorial Reviews

'It is important to refresh our perspectives upon the perennial problem of miscarriages of justice, and Michael Naughton. . . thoroughly explains to us in his book why, after a Royal Commission and so much criminal justice legislation, reform remains essential.' - Clive Walker, Professor of Criminal Justice Studies, Leeds University, UK'This book provides a refreshing new approach to the analysis of miscarriages of justice. Drawing upon Foucault's analysis of governmentality and the emerging new perspective of zemiology, it maps a new terrain for understanding miscarriages. It is clearly written and succinct. It should be essential reading for students of law, criminology, sociology and politics.' - Paddy Hillyard, Professor of Sociology, Queen's University Belfast, UK'Michael Naughton's analysis succeeds in identifying a new and relevant perspective which challenges some of the assumptions made by different groups within society about miscarriages of justice. . . Most importantly the book does move the miscarriage of justice debate forward, highlighting from a humanitarian perspective not only the true scale of the problem but also the devastating and often under-estimated extent of harm that results. In addition it reflects on some avenues and approaches that can be utilised to promote positive change rather than presenting as a document of despair. As such it is an important read for all parties concerned about this issue.' - Dennis Eady, Criminology and Criminal Justice'. . . in this book Naughton attempts to contribute to new ways of thinking about and acting upon miscarriages of justice. . .' - The Criminal Lawyer
