The author of this work presents an integrated theory of double-jeopardy law, a theory anchored in historical, doctrinal and philosophical method which functions to keep prosecutors and judges from imposing more than one criminal judgment for the same offence.;Determining when seemingly different offences constitute the ""same offence"" is not easy; neither is determining when a defendant has suffered more than one criminal judgment. Tracing American double-jeopardy doctrine back to 12th-century English law, the book develops a jurisprundential account of double jeopardy that recognizes the central role of the legislature in creating criminal-law blameworthiness.
