Synopsis

Government policy has steadfastly been against drug legalisation, but increasingly critics have argued that this is unsustainable. This book is a timely examination of the issues this raises.

Numerous suggestions have been offered. Some seek complete legalisation, others a more modified form, yet still others want an increasing commitment to harm reduction policies.

Philip Bean examines the implications of these proposals for individuals, especially juveniles, and for society, when set against crime reduction claims. He concludes with the necessary questions a rational drug policy must answer.

The book will be essential reading for students and academics in criminology, sociology and social policy, as well as policy makers, practitioners and the general public.

Philip Bean is Emeritus Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Loughborough University and a former director of the Midlands Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice. He is the author/editor of numerous books and articles, mainly in the fields of drugs and crime and mental disorder and crime. He has held visiting professorships in Canada, the US and Australia and was, from 2000 to 2005, an associate of the General Medical Council. From 1993 to 1999 he was secretary, and later president, of the British Society of Criminology.
