CRIMINALIZATION : the political morality of the criminal law / edited by R.A. Duff, Lindsay Farmer, S.E. Marshall, Massimo Renzo, Victor Tadros. - Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2014

The Criminalization series arose from an interdisciplinary investigation into criminalization, focusing on the principles that might guide decisions about what kinds of conduct should be criminalized, and the forms that criminalization should take. Developing a normative theory of criminalization, the series tackles the key questions at the heart of the issue: what principles and goals should guide legislators in deciding what to criminalize? How should criminal wrongs be classified and differentiated? How should law enforcement officials apply the law's specifications of offences? The fourth book in the series examines the political morality of the criminal law, exploring general principles and theories of criminalization.
