Punishment, Communication, and Community


Duff RA (2001) Punishment, Communication, and Community. Studies in Crime and Public Policy. Oxford University Press.

Part of the Studies in Crime and Public Policy series, this book, written by one of the top philosophers of punishment, examines the main trends in penal theorizing over the past three decades. Duff asks what can justify criminal punishment, and then explores the legitimacy of actual practices by examining what would count as adequate justification for them.
