Subjects Description A high proportion of crimes committed in Britain are drugs-related, with many offenders having a documented history of drug use. However, the direct link between drugs and crime is often less clear than is supposed and this text attempts to achieve a better understanding of these and surrounding issues that have been marred by misunderstanding and a lack of consensus amongst experts.
This text offers a major contribution to existing debates and provides an authoritative and much-needed overview of the range of issues associated with drugs-related crime.
This new edition has been fully updated to include the latest data and recent developments in policy and particular attention is paid to changes in sentencing and treatment, as well as changes to practice in trafficking.
An expanded chapter on women, drugs and crime now offers further coverage of drug-taking and prostitution. This is the only book in Britain which centres on the links between drugs and crime, and deals with the policy implications of that link.
It is a comprehensive account of the various aspects of Government policy concerning drugs, and should be particularly useful to academics and students interested in or studying this aspect of criminology. It offers an intelligent and balanced assessment of the issues, informed by a broad historical perspective.
Unlike most books on the subject, it is not hindered with the typical review of the various types of drugs and their effects, followed by a superficial coverage of drug use and criminality.
Rather, this text addresses the key issues relevant to studying the link between crime and drugs, such as trafficking, policing, sentencing, legislation, as well as the debate regarding legalisation and decriminalisation.
