Taking as its theme the theory and practice of criminal responsibility, this text asks why killers deserve punishment, and how the law should decide. The author argues that people deserve punishment according to the evil they choose to do, regardless of their psychological capacities. Using real case examples, he offers proposals for legal reform, urging that modern preoccupations with subjective aspects of wrong-doing be replaced with rules that focus more on the individual's motives.
