Abstract:

"How do we find out about what is happening in relation to crime, policing and the punishment of offenders? One of the most significant, but largely neglected, sources of this knowledge is the official inquiry. In this book a distinguished team of contributors investigate the structures and processes of official discourse, exploring ways in which this produces forms of knowledge which are regularly accepted as the definitive truth about issues and which then drive the ways in which justice is perceived and understood." "Whilst the mechanisms that produce official discourse may vary according to different jurisdictions some clear themes nevertheless emerge in the book's wide-ranging analysis - in particular around the ways in which official discourse is increasingly contested and can be understood as serving a variety of roles and functions in addition to its capacity for truth determination."--Jacket.
