The Innocent and the Criminal Justice System examines competing perspectives on, and definitions of, miscarriages of justice to tackle these questions and more in this critical sociological examination of innocence and wrongful conviction.

- Provides a wealth of case studies and statistics to apply theoretical discussions of the criminal justice system to real-life situations
- Discusses ideas and challenges that are highly relevant to current political and social debates

Elegantly written by a leading expert in the field, this book is essential reading for students of criminology, criminal justice and law, looking to understand the workings of the criminal justice system and how it can fail the innocent.
