Deborah H Drake and Rod Earle are the guest editors of the themed section with articles based on an Open Univerity conference, 'Resisting the Eclipse: An International Symposium on Prison Ethnography', held at the International Centre for Comparative Criminological Research and contributors consider the way to open the closed world of prisons to wider scrutiny.
Topical articles include Peter Squires on the challenges to critical research at a time of exclusionary research protocols, David Wood on the consumerist thinking underlying the government's 2012 Swift and Sure Justice White Paper, and Rod Morgan on the future of the magistracy, plus highlights from Pat Carlen's 2012 Eve Saville lecture.
