Description

Racism and Anti-Racism in Probation analyses the complex processes by which black people are treated differentially by the probation service. Drawing on detailed ethnographic material, David Denney shows how conventions used by probation officers can discriminate against black people. He considers the implications of recent changes in penal policy on the development of probation work and considers how future developments may lead to an anti-racist form of probation practice.
