Book Description

Crime and punishment are emotive issues which raise important and challenging questions. Can punishment be justified? If so, then what purpose does it have? Which practices best cohere with this purpose? These and many other questions are addressed by this series of five volumes which bring together classic articles written by leading international figures in the field. Each volume is organized thematically with a general introduction to provide an accessible overview of the latest research. The essays selected for inclusion are seminal works published in English and the series constitutes an invaluable reference resource for libraries, students, researchers and practitioners.
