As a criminologist and academic Mr Braithwaite tends to use many “in-house” phrases and words which makes the book heavy reading, especially for a layman such as I looking for simple answers. However, the content and theory are excellent, well researched and relevant in todays crime ridden society.

I believe that Mr Braithwaite has the answer, or the beginning of the answer, in this book and I would make reintegratino compulsory reading for all existing and would be Judges in the world today. I highly recommend the book to all concerned citizens looking for an explanation, an answer, and a solution to the upward spiralling crime rate.
