    schema:reviewBody ""The drugs issue in prisons and the making of prison drugs policy have become global concerns. Drugs, Prisons and Policy-Making offers the first detailed account of the history of drugs policy in the English prison system since 1980. It has developed from empirical research which involved documentary analysis and interviews with key actors in the policy process, including senior civil servants, directors of drug agencies and penal reform groups, and spokespersons from professional associations. Drawing on concepts, theories and research from a variety of disciplines including criminology, social policy, sociology and public administration, Karen Duke examines how policy networks have attempted to contain the tensions, contradictions, and convergences between therapeutic and control ideologies in relation to drugs in the prison environment. She explores how their activities have been shaped by the ways in which the drugs issue is framed and defined, the roles of research, evidence and knowledge in the policy process, and the impact of wider social, political and institutional contexts."--BOOK JACKET." ;
