The authors also consider the many theories which seek to justify and explain the practice of punishment, and their value in helping the reader undertand the penal system. The authors argue that the penal system not only suffers from severe practical problems but it is morally indefensible and they go on to outline the radical reforms that are urgently needed. Throughout the book comparisons are drawn with other penal systems from around the world. This second edition takes into account the escalating crisis within the penal system.
