"From the opening paragraph, Pillsbury piques the reader's curiosity about just punishments. . . . What do people deserve for their wrongdoing, especially in those cases involving extreme cruelty? . . . Pillsbury enables clear and careful thinking about one's own expectations of the legal system. Highly recommended."
"A provocative, well-written volume that will keenly interest criminologists, lawyers, and philosophers alike."
