              Behavioural Genetics, Moral Agency and Retributive Sentencing: The Case for Mitigation (Hardback)

              The notion of a 'crime gene' has attracted the attention of the general public and legal practitioners. In this book, McCay paints a picture of influences on criminal conduct that, instead of simply resulting from a 'crime gene', result from the interplay of biological and social... factors. Such a view of moral agency has implications for sentencing, and courts are now or will soon be asked to consider the mitigating effect of this interplay. The work contends that from the perspective of a retributivist, there may be ethical merit to a behavioural genetics based plea in mitigation. Furthermore, there may be ways of making such a plea that are consistent with existing lines of authority. In short there may be ethical and legal merit to such a plea.However, common law sentencing regimes generally pay attention to both retributive considerations and issues of community protection. The book argues that behavioural genetics based pleas in mitigation may make it more difficult to reconcile the retributive and community protection orientated aims of sentencing. It may thus raise ethical and legal difficulties for the many jurisdictions that attempt to balance these aims. In an area of law which lacks a body of precedent, this book benefits from insights from judges obtained through interviews.

              The legitimacy and performance of the traditional criminal justice system is the subject of intense scrutiny as the world economic crisis continues to put pressure on governments to cut the costs of the criminal justice system. This volume brings together the leading work on rest...orative justice to achieve two objectives: to construct a comprehensive and up-to-date conceptual framework for restorative justice suitable even for newcomers; and to challenge the barriers of restorative justice in the hope of taking its theory and practice a step further. The selected articles start by answering some fundamental questions about restorative justice regarding its historical and philosophical origins, and challenge the concept by bringing into the debate the human rights and equality discourses. Also included is material based on empirical testing of restorative justice claims especially those impacting on reoffending rates, victim satisfaction and reintegration. The volume concludes with a critique of restorative justice as well as with analytical thinking that aims to push its barriers. It is hoped that the investigations offered by this volume not only offer hope for a better system for abolitionists and reformists, but also new and convincing evidence to persuade the sceptics in the debate over restorative justice.

              International Criminal Law: Using or Abusing Legality? (Paperback)

              This book analyses the relationship between law and violence, the utility of law over violence and whether legality as an approach has an inherent disability in addressing mass violence as a crime. The study is located within international law and assesses whether prosecuting pol...itical violence would necessarily entail an abuse of the legal process. The intention is to encourage definition of criminal aggression via legal processes laid down by the International Criminal Court, rather than giving favour to political action under the United Nations Charter. Issues discussed in the book include the controversies over the location of the crime of aggression in either law or politics, taking a legal approach to the problems outlined. Using examples from Libya, the Ivory Coast, and Kenya, the work will be of interest to those working in the areas of international criminal justice, international law, legal theory, and international relations.

              The Crime of Destruction and the Law of Genocide: Their Impact on Collective Memory (Paperback)

              This highly original work provides a thought-provoking and valuable resource for researchers and academics with an interest in genocide, criminology, international organizations, and law and society. In her book, Caroline Fournet examines the law relating to genocide and explores... the apparent failure of society to provide an adequate response to incidences of mass atrocity. The work casts a legal perspective on this social phenomenon to show that genocide fails to be appropriately remembered due to inherent defects in the law of genocide itself. The book thus connects the social response to the legal theory and practice, and trials in particular. Fournet's study illustrates the shortcomings of the Genocide Convention as a means of preventing and punishing genocide as well as its consequent failure to ensure the memory of this heinous crime.
