Summary
  • "The economically deprived come into contact with the criminal court system in sorely disproportionate numbers. Should economic deprivation then figure in the administration of criminal law? And if so, how? This collection of essays explores the troubling questions and ethical dilemmas inherent in this situation."
  • "The contributors, including well-known legal and political philosophers Philip Pettit, George Fletcher, and Jeremy Waldron, draw from a broad ideological spectrum to offer comprehensive coverage of these pressing issues. Making a vital contribution to the normative debate over the social and criminal justice nexus, From Social Justice to Criminal Justice will prove provocative reading for students and scholars of philosophy, criminal justice, and criminology."--Jacket
