Routledge, Farnham, UK. What are the various forces influencing the role of the prison in late modern societies?
What changes have there been in penality and use of the prison over the past 40 years that have led to the re-valorization of the prison? Using penal culture as a conceptual and theoretical vehicle, and Australia as a case study, this book analyses international developments in penality and imprisonment.
They develop penal culture as an explanatory framework for continuity, change and difference in prisons and the nature of contested penal expansionism. The influence of transformative concepts such as 'risk management', 'the therapeutic prison', and 'preventative detention' are explored as aspects of penal culture.

Processes of normalization, transmission and reproduction of penal culture are seen throughout the social realm.
Comparative, contemporary and historical in its approach, the book provides a new analysis of penality in the 21st century. I admire, and would recommend, the book as a model of academic writing, exegesis, explanation and argument. The authors are clearly very much at home with the vast array of empirical materials and theoretical perspectives which they describe, explain and employ with ease and elegance of expression It is that clever and seamless combination of structure and strategy which unifies the six authors' contributions into one consistent and coherent authorial voice.

And, also arguably, it is that authoritative but multiply-nuanced voice that endows the book with its discursive power. In what is a rarity, the analysis is based on research in each state. It will be of great interest both in Australia and beyond.
