Description

"Principled Sentencing" brings together the major current ideas about sentencing theory and policy in the British and American legal systems. In a series of essays and documents, leading theorists and practitioners outline the four main areas of concern as rationales for sentencing: rehabilitation; deterrence; incapacitation; and desert. Readings on different sentencing systems and on non-custodial sentences are also included. A final chapter places sentencing in a broad social context, showing how sentencing should respond to the concerns of the victim and what relation it should have to the early stages of the criminal process.show more
