The aim of this book is to provide an integrated analysis of sentencing powers and principles by examining the following key areas: drug offences, white collar crime, violent crime, dangerous offenders and mentally abnormal offenders. The book concentrates on the relationship between sentencing policy and penal policy in these key areas by assessing the impact of recent legislation and sentencing principles on policy formation. Comparisons with other jurisdictions are made where appropriate. The book also provides an assessment of the relationship between sentencing principles, guideline judgements and Attorney General's references in relation to each area considered and its relevance for sentencing policy. Ethical and moral issues in sentencing policy development are also examined.
