Bob Turney gave up crime to study for a degree at Reading University and was rehabilitating himself by way of voluntary work. Three years on, Bob is a probation officer working in a Youth Justice Team. This book charts his progress from down-and-out 'ex-con' to a respected citizen in his life story up until 1997.
WATERSIDE PRESS publishes works of interest across the legal system where many of its titles have become staples for practitioners, tutors and librarians. Waterside authors come from a wide range of backgrounds and include for example lawyers, judges, campaigners, ex-prisoners, historians, biographers, criminologists and other experts. We also publish works on aspects of social history and seek to blend readability with excellence, diversity, innovation and integrity. In 2010, Waterside Press published Sir William Garrow: His Life Times and Fight for Justice the contents of which were mirrored in the award-winning BBC TV series 'Garrows Law', leading to other projects touching on popular culture or with links to the media.
