Sentencing Reform in Overcrowded Times : A Comparative Perspective
Sentencing and corrections issues are much the same in every Western country and increasingly efforts are being made to import policies and practices that have succeeded elsewhere. This volume brings together articles on sentencing reform in the United States, other English-speaking countries (Australia, Canada, England, Wales, New Zealand, South Africa), and Western Europe, by leading national and international authorities on sentencing policy, practices, and institutions. Short, timely, and readable, the articles originally appeared in the journal Overcrowded Times. Together, they fill a major gap in the academic and policy literatures and will be essential reading for students, scholars, and practitioners in the field.
