Product Description

From the Author

Tony Parker - The most outstanding interviewer of criminals
This collection of work, chosen by Tony Parker shortly before his death, provides the very essence of his quite distinctive contribution to criminology. In this book, Tony Parker speaks intimately with all kinds of offenders - inadquates, professional criminals, sex offenders, fraudsters and false pretence merchants. It also includes interviews with prisoners on death row. Lyn Smith concludes with some reflections on Tony Parker's methodology.

This collection celebrates Parker's outstanding body of work and provides a fascinating insight into the criminal mind and experience.

Tony Parker was uniquely gifted as an interviewer; his only rivals in the field are Studs Terkel and Mary Loudon, boith of whom are warmly recommended. Parker's special gift was a capacity to put himself in the other man's (or woman's) shoes, listening but never judging, reporting but never evaluating. This fascinating anthology will give the reader an insight into the criminal mind - usually a closed book to most of us. Brilliantly illuminating.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Unlike earlier reviewers I found this book somewhat tedious in its content, and profoundly depressing in its failure to achieve any discernible progress in what must have been its main hope and purpose: a reduction in recidivism. To be fair to Tony Parker, who was not a bad writer, this failure is shared by the entire sociology, penology and criminology professions.
And, as I've remarked in a previous comment, so far from making it un-putdownable, most of the interviews in the collection simply show that truth can indeed be less strange, and a good deal less exciting, than fiction.

Format: Paperback
A brilliantly written book consisting of very different chapters which cover almost every part of the criminal mind. Engaging and intriguing, it leaves you wondering what the next page will hold and is impossible to put down! Reminding yourself of the fact that the tales are actually true is an awakening jolt back to reality which makes you question whether the present Criminal Justice System is failing the cases outlined.
