'This book successfully provides the reader with an introduction to the complex issue of state crime. It is a topic that examines the intersection of law, politics and criminology. Doig reveals that state crime is an emerging, inchoate and contested area of study. However, it is a topic that is important as it draws criminology into addressing wider issues of power and the uses of crime and crime control.'-Jamie Bennett, Governor of HMP Grendon & Springhill, in Prison Service Journal no 203
