Legal Studies The essays are philosophically sophisticated and tightly argued.

Modern Law Review The combined efforts of these authors address some of the fundamental 'general part' debates that underlie the specific offences that make up the criminal law ... it does successfully take the reader beyond definitional questions of the specific type of offence to ask philosophical questions of the moral and social underpinnings of our conception of criminality, that have application in criminal practice.
