This new, third edition of Principled Sentencing offers students of law, legal philosophy, criminology and criminal justice a comprehensive selection of the leading scholarship on contemporary sentencing. The volume offers readers a wide range of critical readings relating to the key moral, philosophical and policy issues in sentencing today.
The structure of the book remains the same as the previous editions although the new volume contains many new readings on subjects that have recently emerged and which have consequences for sentencing in many jurisdictions. These additional chapters reflect the significant evolution of the field since the previous edition was published in 1998.
As before, each chapter begins with an introduction by one of the editors and concludes with a bibliography of further readings. The contents of each chapter consists of a selection of readings, some very recent, some more timeless - but each in its own way seminal to the field. All the chapters have been substantially revised, as have the editorial introductions.
