Softcover. Fair, objective, humane? Commonly held to be all of those things, the British system of criminal justice enjoys an excellent reputation. Nevertheless there are flaws in its application, highlighted in this disturbing collection of articles. Focusing in detail on several issues - including the death of Jimmy Kelly, the use of supergrasses, the Yorkshire Ripper - the authors expose the deeply rooted prejudices and values which are built into the system's procedures and practices, raising serious doubts about its objectivity. 287pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers. Review copy with loosely inserted slip.
