Editorial Reviews

"For the policy maker, researcher, academic, or anyone who has serious interests and concerns about sentencing, the advice is simple: Read this book. You will not be disappointed. It investigates the relationship of sentencing policy to crime and punishment practices and the social andpolitical climate of several western nations, including Finland, Germany, Australia, England and Wales, the United States, and the Netherlands. The book reminds us of the importance of developing a broader perspective on sentencing, looking at international standards of acceptability and elaboratingthe cross-national "project" of sentencing reform."-Anthony N. Doob, Centre of Criminology, University of Toronto
