‘This book, written by people with an intimate knowledge of prisons and dangerous prisoners and their mental health and welfare, offers something of an antidote to the simply coercive and repressive. In the words of the editor, it offers ‘a humane approach to working with dangerous people… It should be a basic tenet of psychological work with clients that we are prepared and able to be in sympathy with them, to have some understanding of their despair’. This volume offers a contribution to ways of thinking about dangerous people and their behaviour and working with them constructively, respectfully and possibly redemptively. I sincerely hope that this book will be read by all those concerned with offenders in whatever capacity, from clinicians to politicians, from policy makers to managers. It will well reward their interest and attention.’ Christopher Cordess, Psychoanalyst and Emeritus Professor of Forensic Psychiatry, University of Sheffield
