MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this volume one can find both the cutting edge theoretical issues on criminal law and the thrusts and parries of the leading thinkers who have engaged those issues. Moreover, not only academics interested in criminal law, but students and practitioners as well, will find this to be a truly valuable resource." --Larry Alexander The University of Texas School of Law "Criminal Law Conversations is a bravura feat of intellectual entrepreneurship by Robinson, Ferzan and Garvey. It is a feast of interchange and provocation. Although I feel a bit sheepish about blurbing the book because I am an included author, the volume is indispensable reading for criminal law scholars." --Stephen Morse University of Pennsylvania Law School "The criminal law allocates huge amounts of public resources with no accountability for the resulting impacts on public well-being. These conversations should be helpful to anyone interested in assessing and, perhaps addressing, this archaic dysfunction." -- Michael Marcus Judge, Circuit Court, Multnomah County, Oregon "I had the honor to follow many of these conversations as they unfolded online. No orthodox collection of essays could have gathered such an extravagantly distinguished list of contributors, nor focused their minds so exactly on each other's concerns, nor included such an extraordinary range of perspectives, nor maintained such uniformly high standards throughout. This is a unique product of collective enterprise, and it provides an unsurpassed guide to contemporary criminal law scholarship." --John Gardner Professor of Jurisprudence, University of Oxford "Robinson, Garvey & Ferzan invent a brilliantly useful new format for an edited volume. They provide both a wonderful introduction to a comprehensive array of complex topics in criminal law, and also a place where the conversation between authors and commentators sharpens the cutting edge for understanding on those topics." --Richard McAdams The University of Chicago Law School
