Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Moral and legal philosophers, criminologists, and political theories grapple with the interdependence of the two topics in such dimensions as freedom, autonomy, coercion, and rights. They look at the compatibility of rights and utilitarianism and of autonomy and coercion in Kant's theory, the idea of punishment as communication and its place in a pluralist society, and other matters. Most of the nine essays were presented at a September 1997 conference in York, England. The US distribution is by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
