Hardback. Revised edn. A book dealing with the Probation Service in the UK only. Written almost entirely by serving probation officers, it does not pretend to be a legal textbook or a manual of instruction. Rather it is an attempt to trace the influences, past and present, which make the Service what it is, to set in relation to each other the various aspects of its work and responsibilities and to indicate some of its growing-points for the future. Chapter headings include : Growth of the Probation Service; Principles and Methods of Social Casework; Casework in Probation and Supervision Cases; After-Care; Matrimonial Conciliation; Training of Probation Officers; Organization and Relations from the Administrative Angle; Organization and Relations from the Field-Work Angle; Relations with the Courts; Relations with the Community; The National Association of Probation Officers; Extracts from the Criminal Justice Act, 1948. With Index. 252pp. 8vo. h/back. Lightly browned edges, small neat name insc. to ffep, two v. small black ink mks. to lower edge of bep and bpd o/w Vg+
