Abstract

In Governance, Performance, and Capacity Stress, Simon Bastow offers well-presented insights into both the pressures and the often hidden resources and capabilities which the prison system deploys to sustain itself, writes Andrew Gray. Both practitioners and students will find explanations of the complexities of this particular public administration, and readers with public policy interests beyond criminal justice will find a transferable methodology to investigate other manifestations of chronic capacity stress.
