                          Editorial


                       Change   of Editorship
As  from the May  1987  issue, Professor Emeritus Leslie Wilkins kindly
agreed to take up the editorial reins with a view to his eventually replacing
Ken  Pease. Professor Wilkins is such a key figure in the development of
criminology that he is one of those genuinely rare individuals who quite
literally needs no introduction. Suffice it to say that we are honoured by
his acceptance and confident that his wisdom will help us to continue the
advances  in range and content which, to date, have been so much  the
product of the foresight of Ken Pease. In a characteristically generous and
professional manner Ken Pease agreed to maintain the editorial office and
a major part of the editorial function during the transitional period. We
take this opportunity to recognise our debt to him. Those who know the
insight and  genuinely innovative contribution of his researches will
appreciate how great is this debt. During his editorship he has played a
crucial role in encouraging the submission of first-rate material to the
journal, guiding its refinement through the editorial process and main-
taining the business of the editorial office in an efficient and impressively
prompt   manner.  Missing  in such  a list of accomplishments  is the
comradely  and  sympathetic manner  he brought  to the task. We have
worked  with him as friends, as well as associates, and we will miss him
much.  We  are delighted that he has agreed to continue to serve on the
Editorial Advisory Group.

                          Correspondence
We  also take this opportunity to remind our readers that the Journal is able
to publish correspondence concerning matters raised in the journal and
issues of topical importance. We  have not carried such contributions
recently for the simple reason that none have been received, but it remains
part of our intention to encourage debate and discussion. Such contri-
butions are run under the heading 'Correspondence' and should normally
not exceed a length likely to consume more than a half page of the Journal
(about 250 words).
