A special issue on the investigation of, and inquiry into, deaths in custody and detention (including state hospitals and mental health, police and prison custody, and young offenders' institutions). The volume sets out to consider how advanced democratic states inquire into and investigate deaths in controversial circumstances. Also considered are the deadly force and exceptional incarceration policies associated with the "war on terror" waged by the U.S. and U.K. Articles and essays cover the U.K., Ireland, the U.S. (including, Guantanamo), and Australia and mix academic pieces with accounts from prisoners and campaigners.
