What People are Saying About This

Paul M. Kurtz

A provocative, well-written volume that will keenly interest criminologists, lawyers, and philosophers alike.
—Paul M. Kurtz, J. Alton Hosch Professor of Law, University of Georgia

From the Publisher

"A passionately engaged book that puts individual moral responsibility at the center of criminal justice and challenges much of the traditional wisdom. Required reading for all those interested in criminal justice policy and criminal law."

-Stephen J. Morse,Ferdinand Wakeman Hubbell Professor of Law Professor of Psychology and Law in Psychiatry University of Pennsylvania

"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."
