|German Idealism and the Concept of Punishment (Modern European Philosophy)

Author: Jean-Christophe Merle
Against the background of early modernism - a period that justified punishment by general deterrence - Kant is usually thought to represent a radical turn towards retributivism. For Kant, and later for Fichte and Hegel, a just punishment respects the humanity inherent in the criminal, and serves no external ends - it is instituted only because the criminal deserves it. In this original study, Jean-Christophe Merle uses close analysis of texts to show that these philosophers did not in fact hold a retributivist position, or even a mixed position; instead he traces in their work the gradual emergence of views in favour of deterrence and resocialisation. He also examines Nietzsche's view that morality rests on the rejection of retribution. His final chapter offers a challenge to the retributivist position, and a defence of resocialisation, in the context of current legal theory and practice concerning the punishment of crimes against humanity.

|The Myth of Presidential Representation
Lowest new price: $12.49

Author: B. Dan Wood
In The Myth of Presidential Representation, B. Dan Wood evaluates the nature of American presidential representation, examining the strongly embedded belief - held by the country's founders, as well as current American political culture and social science theory - that presidents should represent the community at large. Citizens expect presidents to reflect prevailing public sentiment and compromise in the national interest. Social scientists express these same ideas through theoretical models depicting presidential behavior as driven by centrism and issue stances adhering to the median voter. Yet partisanship seems to be a dominant theme of modern American politics. Do American presidents adhere to a centrist model of representation as envisioned by the founders? Or, do presidents typically attempt to lead the public toward their own more partisan positions? If so, how successful are they? What are the consequences of centrist versus partisan presidential representation? The Myth of Presidential Representation addresses these questions both theoretically and empirically.

This revised edition of Peter Manning's highly regarded work expands on the conceptual framework and arguments presented in the First Edition. Manning's sociological approach is based on his fieldwork observing, interviewing, and sharing the day-to-day experiences of police in both the United Kingdom and the United States. The author has substantively rewritten and updated the volume. Coverage of technological advancements, current research statistics, citations to important and recent literature, revised tables, and contemporary examples all fuse with Manning's original and still relevant core concepts. Today's well-educated readers interested in understanding the occupation of policing and the role of police in society will find this informative book to be essential to their studies. Substantive changes enrich Manning's original concepts: includes a detailed outline of current technological capabilities for gathering, screening, managing and dispatching information; presents perspectives and findings based on recent studies and research; analyzes the effectiveness of community policing; examines the effects of social, political and economic trends on policing in the U.K. and the U.S.; incorporates examples of change in police policy, namely issues of deadly force and police pursuit; and discusses mass media's effects on policing.
