About the Author

Philip Bean is Emeritus Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Loughborough and a former Director of the Midlands Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice. He is the author/editor of numerous books and articles, mainly in the fields of drugs and crime and mental disorder and crime. He has held Visiting Professorships in Canada, the USA and Australia and was, from 2000 to 2005, an Associate of the General Medical Council. From 1993 to 1999 he was Secretary, and later President of the British Society of Criminology.


"The 'war on drugs' is pursued relentlessly, and yet the drug legalisation debate refuses to go away. In his new book Philip Bean addresses the complexities of this debate, and although his default position is prohibitionist he provides a balanced account of this moral and political minefield." Geoffrey Pearson, Emeritus Professor of Criminology, Goldsmiths, University of London
