""Ethics and Accountability in Criminal Justice: Towards a
Universal Standard is unique in the criminology literature in
Australia. It addresses the urgent question of how to reduce
misconduct, improve ethical practice and minimise miscarriages of
justice across the criminal justice system. The book is well
written and accessible to a wide range of readers. In addressing
the central question it presents a series of instructive case
studies, focusing in particular on demonstrated strategies for
achieving best practice.""
