Adam Calverley's book constitutes another significant leap forward in desistance research. His key contribution rests in offering an in-depth examination of the ways in which structural contexts and cultural aspects of ethnicity affect the terrain on which people travel the road from crime. While these desistance journeys share many common themes, Calverley's study elucidates how different sorts of opportunities, assets, resources and relationships impact on the people involved - for better or worse. His book will be of profound value not just to academic researchers seeking to develop our understandings of desistance but to anyone and everyone with a professional or a personal interest in supporting people in the desistance process. Fergus McNeill, Professor of Criminology and Social Work, University of Glasgow, UK. "Desistance offers a strength-based approach to considering engagement in and disengagement from crime, and this book is a welcome and overdue addition to the desistance literature that focuses on how ethnicity [...] influences the processes of desistance in ethnic minority offender populations in the United Kingdom." Marilyn Chetty, Probation Journal. "The study of cultural differences in relation to desistance makes an important contribution to the gap in the literature. This book is a valuable resources for academics interested in the area of research." Esther Van Ginneken, The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice "Calverley's attention to detail ensures that the book achieves what any good monograph should: it is informative, relevant and interesting. Nuanced desistance research like this and other new studies have the capacity to be game-changers in shifting the focus of the race and crime debate away from pathologybased, criminogenic risk focussed research - which may inadvertently entrench negative representations of ethnic minorities - towards fresh perspectives and proactive partnerships which generate different, better futures and research agendas." Hannah Graham, University of Tasmania, Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology, Volume 48(1)
