Editorial Reviews

Review

In this book, a group of perceptive judges, professors, and one full-time defense attorney critically examine Hart's ideas in light of current legal developments. That is what ties this excellent collection of essay's together. But each contributor writes about whatever aspects of our criminal justice currently interest him. That is all to the good...this is a thought-provoking collection of essays dealing with a variety of current issues in criminal justice. I highly recommend it. (David B. Smith, The Champion)

From the Back Cover

"Timothy Lynch has done an excellent job of assembling original essays and appendices of previously published essays and speeches on the critical issues in criminal law. The book is a smorgasbord of delights--the real 'meat and potatoes' of criminal law."
--Laurie L. Levenson, Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review

Format: Hardcover
Leading experts consider the classic article 'The Aims of the Criminal Law' in a collection highly recommended for any college-level library strong in criminal justice and social issues. It's packed with important analysis of a treatise published over a generation ago by a Harvard law professor Henry Hart Jr, and debates and analyzes some of the most basic principles of criminal law in a free society. Quite simply, a 'must'.

Book was good but I purchased kindle version and it had numerous digital editing on it so I returned it. Other kindle books I purchased did not have the editing problem. This is the only book I have had the problem. Wonder if publisher knows?

Good read. The chapter on federal crime is scary.
