'Paul Garfinkel's vivid account of the development of Italian criminal justice from the perspective of prominent criminal law practitioners relies on a stunning array of sources to craft a convincing argument. An insightful contribution to the study of European law and society, the book offers an important counterpoint to prevailing historiography.' Maura Hametz, Old Dominion University, Virginia
'Eloquently written, and with a welcome focus on the treatment of ordinary rather than political crime, Garfinkel's ground-breaking book persuasively challenges scholarly understandings of the ideas and debates inspiring penal reform in Liberal Italy and the first decade of Mussolini's fascist regime.' Jonathan Dunnage, Swansea University
'This elegantly written and widely researched study of criminal law in liberal and fascist Italy challenges the widely accepted view that Italy's 1930 criminal law code was fascist, positivist and anti-liberal in inspiration. Engaging with the wider debates on the relationship between liberalism and fascism, Paul Garfinkel's conclusions will attract the attention of scholars in many different fields.' John Davis, University of Connecticut
