Why do policymakers sometimes adopt policies that are not supported by evidence? How can scholars and practitioners encourage policymakers to listen to research? This book explores these questions, presenting a fascinating case study of a policy that did not work, yet spread rapidly to almost every state in the United States: the policy of correctional boot camps. Examining the claims on which the implementation of the policy were based, including the assertions that such boot camps would reduce reoffending, save public money and ease overcrowding - none of which proved to be universally accurate - The Evidence Enigma also investigates the political, economic, cultural, and other factors which encouraged the spread of this policy. Both qualitative and quantitative methods are used to test hypotheses, as the author draws rich comparisons with other policies, including Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE), abstinence-only sex education programs, and the electronic monitoring or tagging of offenders in England and Wales. Presenting important lessons for guarding against the proliferation of policies that don't work in future, this ground-breaking and accessible book will be of interest to those working in the fields of criminology, sociology and social and public policy.

This is the autobiography of John Cairncross, the man who gave the Russians the decrypt of the ENIGMA code, thus enabling them to win the battle of Kursk and turning the war against the Germans. It reveals why he turned to espionage, what data he passed on and how MI5 finally tracked him down.

In his Introduction, the late Fr Edwards quotes Archbishop Mathewâ??s succinct summary of the three solutions to the gunpowder plot: according to the orthodox, old-fashioned view Salisbury discovered the conspiracy, a second judgement is that he nourished it and a third that is that he invented it. The third solution is carefully investigated in this book. In his very typical style, Fr Edwards constructs his narrative of events by drawing heavily on the extant primary sources - which is not to say that he does not notice the huge bibliography on the subject. Sir Robert Cecil, Lord Salisbury does not come well out of this extensive study - but that is only to be expected.

In a quiet graveyard in rural England a well-dressed man is digging at a tomb. He is careful not to disturb the occupant’s slumbers as he removes a deeply buried package. He recovers the find and drives away. Shortly afterwards, another man also approaches the grave. He, however, is disappointed. This nerve-tingling operation is part of a cat-and-mouse plot played out between the police and the possessor of a rare and valuable Enigma machine that had been stolen from Bletchley Park. This bizarre episode in Bletchley Park’s history is as mysterious as the activities of the wartime codebreakers who worked there. In this gripping detective story Christine Large, Director of Bletchley Park, reveals the theft’s inside story and explains exactly how the person in possession of the machine was caught.

"After World War I, German admirals were shocked to discover that the Royal Navy had penetrated their secret radio codes and the new, post-war navy set about creating a system so secure that such a breach would never occur again. The result was the now famous Enigma - the Impenetrable Puzzle. This machine was so complex that it was thought no one could break into it; not even when they had a captured machine at their disposal. The German High Command was convinced that the system was wholly secure and totally impregnable." "Their supreme confidence was, however, misplaced. During World War Two, Polish cryptanalysts helped Britain to break into the Enigma system used by the Luftwaffe and Army, but the naval version was more complicated. Even so, British cryptanalysts persevered and in the end they did manage the impossible; to break into this most complicated of ciphers. As a result they helped many merchant convoys avoid the teeth of the Wolf Packs." "This book describes the story of how the tools for this incredible effort were extracted from the U-boats themselves. With a detailed analysis of the development of Enigma, its role during U-boat operations and the subsequent code-breaking at Bletchley Park, this book will be essential for all those fascinated by this enigmatic tool." --Book Jacket.
