A generation ago Harvard Law Professor Henry Hart Jr. published his classic article, “The Aims of the Criminal Law,” which set forth certain fundamental principles concerning criminal justice. In this book, leading scholars, lawyers, and judges critically examine Hart’s ideas, current legal trends, and whether the “first principles” of American criminal law are falling by the wayside. Policymakers, academics, and citizens alike will enjoy this lively discussion on the nature of crime and punishment, and how the choices we make in formulating criminal laws can impact liberty, security, and justice.
Timothy Lynch is director of the Project on Criminal Justice at the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C., and has become a leading voice in the battle for civil liberties and the Bill of Rights. Lynch has published articles in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and the National Law Journal, and he has appeared on PBS’s The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor, and C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, among other venues.
