Punishment and Responsibility is a collection of essays, first published in 1968, has had an enduring impact on academic and public debates about criminal responsibility and criminal punishment.
Forty years on, its arguments are as powerful as ever. H.L.A. Hart offers an alternative to retributive thinking about criminal punishment that nevertheless preserves the central distinction between guilt and innocence.
Always engaged with live issues of law and public policy, Hart makes difficult philosophical puzzles accessible and immediate to a wide range of readers.
Punishment and Responsibility is an excellent addition to your vintage Philosophy of Law collection or home library.
The book Punishment and Responsibility is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears.
