Ethical and social perspectives on situational crime prevention by Andrew Von Hirsch( )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume addresses the ethics of situational crime prevention Are situational crime prevention strategies likely to constrain unduly people's freedom of movement? Do such strategies involve an intrusive scrutiny of people's everyday activities? Can ethical principles be developed that would help distinguish acceptable from unacceptable forms of intervention?" "It also examines the place of situational crime prevention within criminology To what extent does its emergence represent a basic shift in thinking about the nature of crime, and about prospects and strategies for dealing with it? To what extent is crime being treated as a 'normal' risk to be managed? How far does situational crime prevention place responsibility for crime prevention beyond the state apparatus to the organisations and institutions of civil society? What are the social and political implications of doing so?"--Jacket

Crimes, harms, and wrongs : on the principles of criminalisation by A. P Simester( )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When should we make use of the criminal law? Suppose that a responsible legislature seeks to enact a morally justifiable range of criminal prohibitions. What criteria should it apply when deciding whether to proscribe conduct? Crimes, Harms, and Wrongs is a philosophical analysis of the nature, significance, and ethical limits of criminalisation. The authors explore the scope and moral boundaries of harm-based prohibitions, proscriptions of offensive behaviour, and 'paternalistic' prohibitions aimed at preventing self-harm. Their aim is to develop guiding principles for these various grounds of state prohibition, including an analysis of the constraints and mediating factors that weigh for and against criminalisation. Both authors have written extensively in the field. In Crimes, Harms, and Wrongs they have reworked a number of well-known essays and added several important new essays to produce an integrated, accessible, philosophically-sophisticated account that will be of great interest to legal academics, philosophers, and advanced students alike"--Provided by publisher
Previous convictions at sentencing : theoretical and applied perspectives by Julian V Roberts( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This latest volume in the Penal Theory and Penal Ethics series addresses one of the oldest and most contested questions in the field of criminal sentencing: should an offender's previous convictions affect the sentence, and how? This question provokes a series of others: Is it possible to justify a discount for first offenders within a retributive sentencing framework? How should previous convictions enter into the sentencing equation? At what point should prior misconduct cease to count for the purposes of fresh sentencing? Should similar previous convictions count more than convictions unrelated to the current offence? Statutory sentencing regimes around the world incorporate provisions which mandate harsher treatment of repeat offenders. Although there is an extensive literature on the definition and use of criminal history information, the emphasis here, as befits a volume in the series, is on the theoretical and normative aspects of considering previous convictions at sentencing. Several authors explore the theory underlying the practice of mitigating the punishments for first offenders, while others put forth arguments for enhancing sentences for recidivists. The practice of sentencing repeat offenders in two jurisdictions (England and Wales, and Sweden) is also examined in detail." -- Publisher's information
Principled sentencing by Andrew Von Hirsch( Book )

35 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new, third edition of Principled Sentencing offers students of law, legal philosophy, criminology and criminal justice a comprehensive selection of the leading scholarship on contemporary sentencing. The volume offers readers a wide range of critical readings relating to the key moral, philosophical and policy issues in sentencing today. The structure of the book remains the same as the previous editions although the new volume contains many new readings on subjects that have recently emerged and which have consequences for sentencing in many jurisdictions. These additional chapters reflect the significant evolution of the field since the previous edition was published in 1998. As before, each chapter begins with an introduction by one of the editors and concludes with a bibliography of further readings. The contents of each chapter consists of a selection of readings, some very recent, some more timeless - but each in its own way seminal to the field. All the chapters have been substantially revised, as have the editorial

Proportionate sentencing : exploring the principles by Andrew Von Hirsch( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The principle that a sentence should be proportionate to the seriousness of the offence remains at the centre of penal practice and scholarly debate. This volume explores highly topical aspects of proportionality theory that require examination and further analysis. Von Hirsch and Ashworth explore the relevance of the principle of proportionality to the sentencing of young offenders, the possible reasons for departing from the principle when sentencing dangerous offenders, and the application of the principle to socially deprived offenders. They examine the claim that the principle tends to be associated with greater severity in sentencing, and explore the relevance of penance and of restorative justice to proportionality theory."--Jacket

Deserved criminal sentences : an overview by Andrew Von Hirsch( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an accessible and systematic restatement of the desert model for criminal sentencing by one of its leading academic exponents. The desert model emphasises the degree of seriousness of the offender's crime in deciding the severity of his punishment, and has become increasingly influential in recent penal practice and scholarly debate. It explains why sentences should be based principally on crime-seriousness, and addresses, among other topics, how a desert-based penalty scheme can be constructed; how to gauge punishments' seriousness and penalties' severity; what weight should be given to an offender's previous convictions; how non-custodial sentences should be scaled; and what leeway there might be for taking other factors into account, such as an offender's need for treatment. This volume will be of interest to all those working in penal theory and practice, criminal sentencing and the criminal law more generally."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Liberal criminal theory : essays for Andreas von Hirsch by A. P Simester( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book celebrates Andreas (Andrew) von Hirsch's pioneering contributions to liberal criminal theory. He is particularly noted for reinvigorating desert-based theories of punishment, for his development of principled normative constraints on the enactment of criminal laws, and for helping to bridge the gap between Anglo-American and German criminal law scholarship. Underpinning his work is a deep commitment to a liberal vision of the state. This collection brings together a distinguished group of international authors, who pay tribute to von Hirsch by engaging with topics on which he himself has focused. The essays range across sentencing theory, questions of criminalisation, and the relation between criminal law and the authority of the state. Together, they articulate and defend the ideal of a liberal criminal justice system, and present a fitting accolade to Andreas von Hirsch's scholarly life

Solidarität im Strafrecht zur Funktion und Legitimation strafrechtlicher Solidaritätspflichten by Andrew Von Hirsch( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Strafrecht verbietet es, gewichtige Rechtsgüter anderer Personen zu beeinträchtigen. Darf das scharfe Instrument des Strafrechts aber auch eingesetzt werden, um ein „solidarisches“ Verhalten der Bürger zum Schutze fremder Rechtsgüter zu erzwingen? Die deutsche Rechtsordnung bejaht diese Frage, indem sie die Verweigerung zumutbarer Hilfe bei Unglücksfällen mit Strafe bedroht (§ 323 c StGB) und den einzelnen in Notstandssituationen zur Duldung von Eingriffen in eigene Rechtsgüter zwingt (§ 34 StGB). Von anderen Rechtsordnungen wird eine Kriminalisierung der „Unterlassenen Hilfeleistung“ abgelehnt. Um die Frage, ob und in welcher Weise die strafrechtliche Absicherung von „moralischen“ Hilfspflichten zu begründen ist, geht es in diesem vorliegenden Band. Das Werk versammelt Vorträge und Diskussionsbeiträge einer internationalen Tagung, die zu diesem Problemkreis unter dem Thema „Solidaritätspflichten im Strafrecht – Funktion und rechtsphilosophische Begründung“ am 5. und 6. März 2010 in Bad Homburg stattfand. Die Tagung hatte sich insbesondere zum Ziel gesetzt, das Problem der strafrechtlichen Solidaritätspflichten unter Einbeziehung der ideengeschichtlichen Tradition und rechtsvergleichenden Aspekte zu diskutieren. Einen Schwerpunkt des Bandes bildet der Dialog mit Vertreterinnen und Vertretern aus dem angloamerikanischen Rechtskreis. Mit Beiträgen von: Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Andrew Ashworth, Dr. Antje du Bois-Pedain, Dr. Anna Coninx, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Andreas von Hirsch, Prof. Dr. Jan C. Joerden, Prof. Dr. jur. Dr. phil. Dres. h.c.
