MEDIA REVIEWS

'Punishment and Ethics: New Perspectives proves that punishment theory is not only alive but lively in surprising ways both in the US and in Europe - retributivism, of course, but also (another surprise) some forms of consequentialism too. The range of questions seems to be growing as well. Who would have have expected a whole chapter trying to justify punitive torture or showing that Socrates held a mixed theory of punishment (if he had a "theory" at all)? Whatever my opinion of particular arguments, I found the book as a whole fun - taking me to many places I had not expected to go.' - Michael Davis, Illinois Institute of Technology
