In 2009, Larry Alexander and Kimberly Ferzan published Crime and Culpability: A Theory of Criminal Law. The book set out a theory that those who deserve punishment should receive punishment commensurate with, but no greater than, that which they deserve. Reflections on Crime and Culpability: Problems and Puzzles expands on their innovative ideas on the application of punishment in criminal law. Theorists working in criminal law theory presuppose or ignore puzzles that lurk beneath the surface. Now those who wish to examine these topics will have one monograph that combines the disparate puzzles in criminal law through a unified approach to culpability. Along with some suggestions as to how they might resolve the puzzles, Alexander and Ferzan lay out the arguments and analysis so future scholars can engage with questions about our understanding of culpability that very few have addressed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Alexander and Ferzan consider an extremely wide range of important problems, both familiar and novel, in the philosophy of criminal law and punishment. Their work is punchy, interesting, entertaining, sharply argued, and right at the cutting edge. There are few people that I agree with less, or enjoy reading more.' Victor Tadros, University of Warwick
'When Alexander and Ferzan - two of our most original and stimulating criminal law theorists - offer a tour of the field's 'problems and puzzles', the smart move is to hop aboard. Readers not fully persuaded by Ferzander's heterodox yet rigorous arguments are nonetheless bound to emerge unsettled, and provoked to deeper thought.' Mitchell Berman, University of Pennsylvania Law School
'Alexander and Ferzan are deft deployers of analytic rigor to solve the puzzles and paradoxes that criminal law produces. Many will disagree with their creative and often elegant solutions, but all readers will be challenged and learn from this book. It is an indispensable work of criminal law theory.' Stephen J. Morse, University of Pennsylvania Law School
