Australian Sentencing: Principles and Practice
Australian Sentencing: Principles and Practice, first published in 2007, explains the rules, principles, policies and practices that underpin the manner in which people are punished for criminal behaviour in Australia. As well as dealing with sentencing law today, the book provides an extensive analysis of the wider policy, moral, and political consideration which shape sentencing law. It analyses and evaluates existing standards and practices, and suggests how sentencing law should be reformed so that it operates in a fairer, more efficient and effective manner. It is an invaluable text for judicial officers, lawyers, academics and students, and is the only book that examines sentencing law across all Australian jurisdictions.
