"Condorcet, proscribed by a sanguinary faction, formed the idea of addressing to his fellow-citizens a summary of his principles, and of his conduct: in public affairs. He set down a few lines in execution of this project: but when he recollected, as he was obliged to do, thirty years of labour directed to the public service, and the multitude of fugitive pieces in which, since the revolution, he had uniformly attacked every institution inimical to liberty, he rejected the idea of a useless justification. Free as he was from the dominion of the passions, he could not consent to stain the purity of his mind by recollecting his persecutors; perpetually and sublimely inattentive to himself, he determined to consecrate the short space that remained between him and death to a work of general and permanent utility. That work is the performance now given to the world. It has relation to a number of others, in which the rights of men had previously been discussed and established; in which superstition had received its last and fatal blow; in which the methods of the mathematical sciences, applied to new objects, have opened new avenues to the moral and political sciences; in which the genuine principles of social happiness have received a development, and kind of demonstration, unknown before; lastly, in which we every where perceive marks of that profound morality, which banishes even the very frailties of self-love--of those pure and incorruptible virtues within the influence of which it is impossible to live without feeling a religious veneration"--Preface.

On crimes and punishments by Cesare Beccaria ( Book )
6 editions published between 1966 and 1998 in German and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Published in 1764, On Crimes and Punishments by Cesare Beccaria (1738-1794) was greeted with much attention and debate in Europe and North America. Intellectuals and rulers alike commended the work and looked to it for ideas that might help guide the various reform projects of the day. The equality of every citizen before the law, the right to a fair trial, the abolition of the death penalty, and the elimination of the use of torture in criminal interrogations are but a few of the fundamental concepts articulated by Beccaria." "This volume provides a new English translation of Beccaria's classic treatise as well as responses by a number of his contemporaries. Of particular interest is Voltaire's commentary on Beccaria's text, included in its entirety. The supplementary materials testify not only to the power and significance of Beccaria's ideas, but to their controversial nature. While many supporters proclaimed that the work established principles of enduring importance to any society grappling with matters of political and criminal justice, a number of critics roundly denounced it, fearing that the book's attack on feudal traditions and its call to separate law from religion (and thus crime from sin) would result in political instability and undermine the longstanding privileges and powers of church and state." "Long appreciated as a foundational text in criminology, Beccaria's arguments still resonate with current debates over capital punishment, political torture, and human rights abuses. This splendid new translation brings Beccaria's influential work to a wider audience, while providing important historical and political context."--BOOK JACKET
