Exiting Prostitution by Roger Matthews Exiting Prostitution, Hardback (September 2014)

How people move from deviant to conventional lifestyles is an issue that has attracted considerable interest over the past few years. However, much of this work has focused on men desisting from crime. This book provides one of the first examinations of desistance which is centred on women and, more specifically, how they exit prostitution.

Realist Criminology by Roger Matthews Realist Criminology, Hardback (August 2014)

This book challenges contemporary criminological thinking, providing a thorough critique of mainstream criminology, including both liberal criminology and administrative criminology. It sets a new agenda for theoretical and practical engagement, and for creating a more effective and just criminal justice system.

Doing Time by Roger Matthews Doing Time, Paperback (August 2009)

This revised and updated edition brings a widely-recognized text up to date to provide an accessible and informed discussion of current debates on prisons and penal policy. Taking a global view, Doing Time is an invaluable critical sociological analysis of imprisonment.

Prostitution, Politics and Policy by Roger Matthews Prostitution, Politics and Policy, Paperback (January 2008)

Prostitution has become a topical issue and attention has focused both on the situation of female prostitutes and the adequacy of existing forms of regulation.
