Abstract

Since the 1980s, electronic monitoring has been successfully introduced in a number of countries worldwide. Much of the literature on electronic monitoring has been produced by officials and researchers directly involved in the implementation of experimental electronic monitoring programmes and has been subject to little critical scrutiny. This book addresses the broader factors in electronic monitoring's development. Drawing on recent developments in the sociology of punishment and crime control, this book will develop a critical criminological perspective on electronic monitoring in selective countries around the world.
