A powerful petition for the exclusion of private enterprise from Britain’s public sector, Privatising Justice examines the Britain’s criminal justice system and the accelerated privatization of the state. Through vivid case studies, John Lea and Wendy Fitzgibbon show how the changing private state is not actually a modernization of the system but rather a complete reversal of previous economic tendencies that jeopardize true justice.
