Book Description

July 12 1990
Introducing a radical shift in the research agenda of criminology, Braithwaite and Pettit here attack currently fashionable retributivist theories of punishment, arguing that the criminal justice system is so integrated that sentencing policy has to be considered in the system-wide context. They offer a comprehensive theory of criminal justice which points the way to practical intervention in the real world of incremental reform, and argue for a republican criminal justice system where the maximizing of individual dominion is set as the goal for progressive policy change.

Review


"Deep, important....What makes this book so compelling is that normative ideals are operationalized in the context of a hard-nosed understanding of both criminal behavior and the working realities of the criminal justice system....The greatest tribute I can pay this book is that it has caused me to rethink my own position on the just deserts idea."--The Law and Politics Book Review
