Now available in paperback, this book provides an authoritative and
original account of the history of probation. Maurice Vanstone
offers readers a new way of reading probation history and presents
an original context for thinking about current policy and practice.
While the study is essentially UK-focused, it also provides a
comparative perspective by exploring the history of probation in
the USA. The author's research has produced the only history of
probation practice that does justice to the mixture of influences
on the early probation service and paves the way for today's more
evidence-based approach. The work is based in part upon original
documents and interviews with retired and serving officers.
Supervising Offenders in the Community is an essential reference
source for criminologists, social workers, social historians and
social policy specialists.
