520    Who are the murderers and lifers? What should we do with 
       them while they are in custody? What are the faults with 
       the present lifer arrangements? An expert analysis by two 
       people who have spent their professional lives dealing 
       with such offenders.The authors write from personal 
       knowledge of lifers and many years experience working 
       closely with them within the prison system-making 
       Murderers and Life Imprisonment not just a highly 
       authoritative account but also one containing vivid, often
       compelling illustrations. There is a certain futility in 
       some of the present arrangements and the authors do not 
       shrink from making a number of suggestions for 
       improvements under the headings containment, treatment, 
       public safety and risk.The range of this major work is 
       wide: from an examination of 'Who Are the Lifers?' 
       (including a UK/USA comparison), lifer profiles, 'The 
       Structure of a Life Sentence' and 'The Psychology of the 
       Murderer', the book moves on to deal with 'Containment and
       Treatment', 'Discretionary Lifer Panels' and a range of 
       ethical, Human Rights and associated issues. There are 
       special contributions by David Wilson on 'Delusions of 
       Innocence' and Roland Woodward on 'Lifer Risk Assessment' 
       (including what it is, how it is done and a critical 
       examination of clinical and other methods). The work is 
       further enhanced by case studies (anonymised) based on 
       actual case histories
