This book provides an authoritative overview and analysis of issues of assessment, treatment and management of dangerous offenders. It takes particular account of recent policy and legislative changes such as the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and the development of initiatives to manage dangerous offenders, such as MAPPA (Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements). The book addresses wider issues of risk and the dangerous offenders in the context of the risk society, questions the relationship between the assessment, treatment and management of offenders, and considers who it is appropriate to involve in this process.

The book takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the assessment, treatment and management of violent and sexual offenders, and extends its coverage to include the issue of stalking. Contributors to the book bring to bear a wide range of expertise from both academic and practitioner contexts, and are drawn from the UK, Canada, New Zealand and Switzerland.
