Criminalising Harmful Conduct : The Harm Principle, Its Limits and Continental Counterparts Hardback
by Nina Persak
This book explores the issue of legitimate criminalization in a modern, liberal society.
It argues that criminalization should be limited by normative principles, defining the substance of what can be legitimately proscribed.
Coverage provides a comparative study between two major criminal legal systems and its theories: the Anglo-American, on one side, and the Continental criminal legal system of Germanic legal circle, on the other.
