ERRATUM The sentence on p. 153, lines 5-7 should read "...if welfare expenditure had not risen but remained at its 1987 level, the rise in imprisonment would have been 20 per cent greater than actually occurred, i.e. from 75 in 1987 to 99 in 1998." No other part of the book is affected by this correction.
