About the Author

Helen Codd is Principal Lecturer and International Co-Ordinator in the Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Central Lancashire.


'Anyone wanting to support families most in need will find this book helpful in reaching and providing fro the, so often 'invisible' families of prisoners.' -- Debbie Cowley, Parenting UK News In the current era of mass imprisonment ... it is lamentable that most discussions of prisoners' families are restricted to either the benefits of wives in facilitating men's desistance from crime or to parental imprisonment as a risk factor for child delinquency. Helen Codd's In the Shadow of Prison [is] a welcome departure from such narrow and depersonalised depictios of prisoners' families. In The Shadow of Prison is ... a useful introduction the the policy and legal issues faced by prisoners' wives, partners and children.' -- Gilly Sharpe, Lecturer in Criminology, University of Sheffield in The Howard Journal Vol 49 No. 5 December 2010
