The book applies the principle of proportionality to a number of conventional wisdoms in the social sciences, such as in dubio pro reo and the assumption that a crime is always a crime; that you must go to war if instructed to do so. Individuals and states are not obliged to come to the aid of stricken individuals and states. The book is organised in seven chapters, each dealing with a self-standing theme related to proportionality.

1. Preface.
2. Introduction.
3. Book I, In Dubio Pro Reo.
4. Book II, When a Crime is not a Crime.
5. Book III, Love and Proportionality.
6. Book IV, The End Justifying the Means.
7. Book V, True Globalisation.
8. Book VI, Large and Small Crimes.
9. Book VII, A Farewell to Evolution.
