Indirectly but firmly, the articles in this collection are, in fact, a challenging tribute to the extensive work of von Hirsch... These fourteen articles, especially through the volume's extensive footnoting and helpful indexing, also offer a comprehensive guide to, and impression of, the relevant literature and topics that have shaped the interaction of censure and desert over the past fifty years. And, lastly, these articles consistently offer suggestions for those un- or inadequately-addressed but relevant matters that await future treatment. -- Russ Immarigeon * Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books *
