cjm 95: Electronic monitoring

In a series of articles focussing on electronic monitoring (EM), guest editor Mike Nellis and the contributors take an international perspective to consider how the use of EM is faring in countries such as Australia, Germany, the USA, Sweden and the UK.

In the topical section, Nick Hardwick writes about the damning findings by the Prison Inspectorate at Feltham; Julie T Davies examines the role of the state in limiting 'the truth' being told and Elaine Campbell argues for different ways of doing democracy.
