Editorial Reviews

Law and Politics Book Review - Caryl Lynn Segal
"This excellent eleven-article volume discusses penal policies in the Netherlands, Belgium, England, Canada, Scandinavia, France, and Japan, and it should appeal to political scientists. Michael Tonry's opening article, followed by Jean-Paul Brodeur's piece on comparative penology, establish high standards for the authors that follow. Nearly all the contributors rise to the occasion."
