Rethinking Miscarriages of Justice: Beyond the Tip of the Iceberg

Author(s): Michael Naughton

Social Sciences

Drawing on Foucauldian theory and 'social harm' paradigms, Naughton offers a radical redefinition of miscarriages of justice from a critical perspective. This book uncovers the limits of the entire criminal justice process and challenges the dominant perception that miscarriages of justices are rare and exceptional cases of wrongful imprisonment.
