    Reviews & endorsements

    '… the breadth of Cartwright's scholarship and lucid writing style have enabled him to produce a book which both advances the academic debate about regulatory crime, while providing an excellent resource for graduate and undergraduate students in consumer law, criminal law and in regulation. I would expect to see Consumer Protection and Criminal Law widely included on reading lists.' Colin Scott, Law Quarterly Review

    'Should the state intervene in the relationship between consumers and producers? In this book the author evaluates the role of criminal law sanctions in consumer protection from an economic and social perspective. He argues that traders (particularly corporations) should be held to account for their activities towards consumers.' Journal of Consumer Policy

    'This is a book which ought to be read by layers and legislators not only in relation to consumer policy but other areas subject to regulatory regimes. It will also be of value to students of these areas not least for its excellent analysis and clarity of exposition.' SCOLAG Legal Journal
