This is a collection of essays, originally published in 1997, form a thorough examination of the theory of criminal responsibility.
The author covers a wide range of topics, giving the book a coherence and unity which is rare in assembled essays. Perhaps the most significant feature of this book is Moore's espousal of a retributivist theory of punishment.
This anti-utilitarian standpoint is a common thread throughout the book. It is also a trend which is currently manifesting itself in all areas of moral, political and legal philosophy, but Moore is one of the first to apply such attitudes so sytematically to criminal law theory.
As such, this innovative, new book will be of great interest to all scholars in this field.
