About this book

This book reconceptualises the concept of moral economy in its relevance for, and application to, the criminal justice system in England and Wales. It advances the argument that criminal justice cannot be reduced to an instrumentally driven operation to achieve fiscal efficiencies or provide investment opportunities to the commercial sector.

Reviews

“Whitehead is exceptionally well-read and has drawn on a wide range of philosophical, theological, psychological and sociological texts to elaborate his argument and to apply his ideas to criminal justice and probation. … a book that might be of interest to practitioners and to scholars from different academic disciplines. It could be read with profit by theologians and philosophers as a valuable example of the way in which philosophy and theology can (and should) inspire contemporary debate in public policy.” (Rob Canton, Probation Journals, Vol. 63 (1), 2016)
