Pressestimmen"This volume is a welcome addition to the sparse literature dealing with sentencing from sociological perspective." - CCJ Volume 6, Issue 2"'One of the main strengths of the book is the way in which Aas draws on the work of a range of theorists including Foucault, Garland and Feeley and Simon who have developed this approach in the field of criminal justice." - Neil Hutton, University of Strathclyde, UK"It is no easy task to do justice to the many virtues of this book in the space of a review [Aas ] book 's wide-ranging exploration into the practices of penological knowing and deciding will be an example and a point of departure for subsequent researchers in the field.
