A book by a leading exponent of work with mentally disordered offenders charting key events in a fifty year career, which will be of particular interest to criminal psychologists, psychiatrists, probation officers, social workers, judges, magistrates, criminologists, and all students of crime and punishment.From a relatively modest background, Herschel Prins rose to become a leading authority on forensic work with offenders suffering from mental disorder.In this frank and heartfelt account, he traces his journey from 'main grade' probation officer, Home Office civil servant, trainer and inspector to top level positions within academic institutions (notably at Leicester University and Loughborough University), with the Parole Board, key nationwide committees, inquiries and beyond.His 'reflections' on a life geared to enhancing knowledge and understanding in this sphere contain unique insights for practitioners and general readers alike - and words of wisdom for the Criminal Justice System as it enters the second decade of the 21st century.
