Reform and Punishment: Essays on Criminal Sentencingby Franklin E. Zimring
A distinguished group of scholars unites in this book to confront the problems of criminal sentencing at a critical juncture in American penal policy. Our prisons bulge. Decisions of far-reaching significance are made daily, but basic principles remain unexamined. This book was commissioned to fill that gap. Stressing the value of a comparative view of penal reform, the book opens with essays on criminal sentencing in other industrialized Western countries.
