Editorial Reviews

From reviews of previous volumes of The Moral Limits of the Criminal Law: "Students of legal philosophy have long recognized Feinberg as an incisive and original thinker; virtually everyone who has written about legal and moral responsibility during the past fifteen years owes him asignificant debt."--Harvard Law Review "This remarkable and great book, like its companion volumes, will transform our conception of standards of argument appropriate to public debate over the limits of the criminal law. It is an original and profound contribution."--David A.J. Richards, New YorkUniversity Law School (on Offense to Others) "Illuminates and advances the discussion of all the issues it touches. It is certainly a major contribution that will require consideration for years to come."--Law and Philosophy (on Harm to Others)
