    A criminal record can be a formidable employment barrier and is thus a major contributor to employment inequality, as most employers would rather avoid hiring an individual who has committed a crime. This book, offering an employer-centric view of the latest research findings, blends interdisciplinary theoretical perspectives and empirical findings to provide an overview and areas for future management research.
