5.0 out of 5 stars The media response proves the point, 18 Jun. 2013
I don't usually write reviews but the media hysteria about this particular book prompted me to respond. I have read the book, which seems to be more than many of the journalists and other commentators. Ross's views are radical and innovative; the book is both readable and well researched. And I think it is right. The public understanding of crime, much of it heavily influenced by its media representation, is not reflected in the reality of the phenomenon. As a consequence we end up with too many people in prison and too many victims. Contrary to many of the accusations in the media, Ross's sympathy with the victims of crime, and for that matter many of the offenders, comes across throughout. I hope more people, particularly the politicians and decision makers, will find the time to read this book. It is an easy read presenting a difficult message.
