Retributivism : essays on theory and policy / edited by Mark D. White. Oxford University Press, c2011.

K5103.R48 2011

 

This book offers analysis and explanations of new developments in retributivism, the philosophical account of punishment that holds that wrongdoers must be punished as a matter of right, duty, or justice, rather than to serve some general social purpose. The contemporary debate over retributivist punishment has become particularly vibrant in recent years, focusing increasingly on its political and economic as well as its philosophical aspects. This book covers the various justifications and conceptions of retributivism, its philosophical foundations, and how retributivism informs actual criminal justice procedures and practices.
