Editorial Reviews

`Will Kymlicka's editorial a masterpiece of lucid exposition which traces a thread of connection and debate through the book. Equally important in this respect is his thoughtful organization of the book which frames the subject in a clear and logical way. As a result,students as well as academics will find this an extremely useful text...This book is most notable for clarifying without oversimplifying a complex and urgent area.'Michael O'Donnell, Theoretical Criminology, Vol.1 No.4 1997
