In this work Maurice Vanstone provides an authoritative and
original account of the history of probation. This invaluable
reference tool 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 will greatly
interest criminologists and criminal justice, social policy, social
history and social work academics and postgraduate students.
