Product description

Review

A devastating critique (and) startling insider’s account of the deception being played upon the public. -- Daily Mail

A wonderful antidote to the poisonous myths so assiduously promoted by the anti-prison lobby -- Sunday Telegraph

Fraser rigorously debunks the perceived success of community supervision orders and the ‘myth’ that prison doesn’t work -- Public Sector Management magazine

In a detailed analysis, Fraser claims that successive governments have talked tough on crime but acted soft. -- Sunday Times

About the Author

For twenty-six years David Fraser served in what is now the National Probation Service, working in busy inner London magistrates' courts as well as in prisons in the capital and the south-west. David also worked as a Criminal Intelligence Analyst with The National Criminal Intelligence Service for many years. In 1998 David gave written and verbal evidence to the House of Commons All Party Committee on 'Alternative Sentencing'. A Land Fit For Criminals is the result of many years of considered research and involvement with the Criminal Justice System. David Fraser is married with two grown-up children. He lives with his wife in Bristol.
