Drugs and crime by Philip Bean( Book )

40 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A high proportion of crimes committed in Britain are drugs-related, with many offenders reporting drug use prior to the commission of their offence. However, the direct link between drug taking and crime is often less clear than is supposed if only because many of those offenders would have committed offences anyway, and these offences need to be separated from those that are directly caused by drugs. Attempts to address many of these and related issues have been bedevilled by misunderstanding and a lack of consensus on the nature of the relationship between drugs and crime." "This book is a major contribution to this debate, and provides an authoritative and much-needed overview of the range of issues associated with drugs-related crime." "This updated and expanded new edition builds upon the strengths of the first edition, extends its coverage to Scotland and Ireland, and includes a wholly new chapter on theoretical debates surrounding the drugs and crime issue."--Jacket

Britain, like almost everywhere else, has a burgeoning drug problem. Finding ways of dealing with this problem is a major platform of government policy and a great deal has been made of the impact of treatment on drug users. Drug Treatment: What Works? is a cutting edge survey of the latest developments in these treatments, and it sets out to ask some of the crucial questions in the treatment of drug abusers; including: * Which treatments work with what sorts of abusers? * What are the key indicators of likely success? * Does coercion work or must treatment be freely entered into? * Is drug testing an essential backup for successful treatment? Featuring contributions from some the leading figures in this field, Drug Treatment: What Works? will be essential reading for students, academics and professionals studying drug treatment in the areas criminology, social policy and medicine

The police rely heavily on paid and unpaid informers: without them clear-up rates would plummet, and many crimes would remain undetected. Yet little is known about the informer system and how it works, for example: who are these informers? how are they recruited? how are they handled? who handles them? what sort of information do they provide?
