"Crime, State and Citizen" had a considerable impact when first published in 2001.
David Faulkner's work comprises an unrivalled overview of criminal justice and penal affairs, including at its core an analysis of fundamental questions about how the actions of the state, police and other public services are to be balanced with the democratic rights and legitimate expectations of ordinary citizens.
As Rod Morgan notes in a new Foreword, David Faulkner's work contains 'an unusually broad and penetrating analysis of criminal justice policy yoked to a deep, personal commitment to an ethical view of the proper role of the state and the rights of citizens'.Indeed, "Crime, State and Citizen" is a book of immense stature with its wide horizons yet penetrating detail: and resonates even more strongly five years on in a new era of crime, punishment, sentencing, policing, prison, probation, restorative justice and victim and offender-based issues.
It is a classic work - worthy of its place in any library.
