'More an encyclopaedia than a dictionary, the more than two hundred entries provide interpretations of key terms in contemporary probation organisation and practice written by the most authoritative commentators in the field of probation studies. Valuable links to recently published research and commentary are provided for every entry. This will prove an invaluable reference work for both probation students and practioners.' - Professor Rod Morgan, University of Bristol and the London School of Economics, formerly Chief Inspector of Probation and Chairman of the Youth Justice Board 'An impressively comprehensive and up-to-date guide with contributions from all the leading scholars in the field. In an area where so much has changed in recent years, Canton and Hancock's Dictionary of Probation and Offender Management will surely become an indispensable text for teachers and students as well as for the probation service itself and others involved in working with offenders.' - Professor Tim Newburn, London School of Economics
