May I thank Mr Hitchens for a thoroughly expert book. Superb research and moral enquiry.

A wonderful, funny polemic. This book explains the break down of crime and punishment in the UK in a humorous, yet serious way.

I am always on the look out for a book that will change the way that I see the world. This is one such book.
Like most of my millenial compatriots, I've been somewhat muddle-headed about the synthesis of personal liberty, executive government, the legal system, and the role of police in civic life. Peter Hitchens brings these together with his trademark incisiveness.
Hitchens has a real knack for bringing out the history of these societal pillars in such a way as to clarify both what they are meant to be, and what they have become. I would call it a must-read in todays political context.
Although this book is written from the British perspective, its application to Australian is quite clear.
Hitchens is a good reader, and not a flamboyant one. There are better readers, but not many.
