Beginning with a review of the history of thought and practice on the subject of legal pardons, this text examines a variety of historical cases. The author addresses the crucial issues surrounding acts of clemency, including what justifies pardoning power, who should be pardoned, and the definition of an unforgivable crime. She analyzes the moral justification of pardons, discussing how to distinguish between justifiable, even morally obligatory, cases and unjustifiable abuses of clemency power.
