"The book provides accounts of electronic monitoring from an impressive variety of international perspectives. These include accounts from several European countries, as well as countries in North America and Australasia… It is anticipated that this collection provides a more detailed understanding upon which further research can be built." ― Ella Holdsworth, The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice Vol 53 No 2. May 2014
"This book is an outstanding contribution to the growing body of work on electronic monitoring. In terms of both the themes addressed and the geographic reach, it is an ambitious undertaking, which is impressively realised." ― Dr. Jamie Bennett, Prison Service Journal
"This is a fine and important book that definitely fills a gap and is to be commended to anyone interested in punishment and control." - Prof. Tom Daems, Leuven Institute of Criminology, British Journal of Criminology
