Sarah Turnbull's book is an important and timely qualitative addition to the field of law and justice ... Turnbull masterfully explains the intersections between the Canadian federal parole system and race, gender, Aboriginal status and identity without oversimplifying this complex issue. Parole in Canada is a highly accessible text that should find its way into every law, social justice and multiculturalism course.-- Katelan Dunn, Conestoga College * LSE Review of Books *
