'Preventive Justice is an impressive and unprecedented contribution to legal and criminal justice scholarship ... The book represents a vital first step on a, hopefully unavoidable, path towards a serious and critical appreciation of the role of prevention both in law and in liberal society more broadly' * Henrique Carvalho, Modern Law Review *
'Among the many scholars who have turned their attention to this phenomenon, Andrew Ashworth and Lucia Zedner are probably the most influential ... Their monograph has accordingly been awaited eagerly; and it does not disappoint. Conceptually elegant, beautifully written, it not only maps out the contours of this emerging field of criminalization but also sets the recent developments within a much-needed historical context ... The book is a considerable achievement ... In Preventive Justice, Ashworth and Zedner have provided not only an excellent piece of scholarship in its own right, but a compelling case for an analytic focus on preventive criminalization.' * Nicola Lacey, British Journal of Criminology *
'Ashworth and Zedner's Preventive Justice is the culmination of a project running over several years ... It is historically and theoretically informed and thoroughly convincing ... The authors' work is simultaneously groundbreaking and of direct practical application, and deserving of considerable praise.' * James Chalmers, Edinburgh Law Review *
