Criminal Law, Tradition and Legal Order by Lindsay Farmer

Book Description

This book examines the relationship between legal tradition and national identity to offer a critical and historical perspective on the study of criminal law. It develops a radically different approach to questions of responsibility and subjectivity, and was among the first studies to combine appreciation of the institutional and historical context in which criminal law is practised with a critical understanding of the law itself. Applying contemporary social theory to the particular case of nineteenth-century Scottish law, Lindsay Farmer is able to develop a critique of modern criminal law theory in general. He traces the development of the modern characteristics of criminal law and legal order, tracing the relationship between legal practice and national culture, and showing how contemporary criminal law theory fundamentally misrepresents the character of modern criminal justice.

Making the Modern Criminal Law by Lindsay Farmer Making the Modern Criminal Law, Hardback (February 2016)

Offering an historical and conceptual account of criminal law, this volume provides insight into how legal concepts such as responsibility, wrongdoing, intent, and punishment emerged out of debates and sensibilities from the 18th Century to the present day, and explores how the State exerts its power and secures civil order through criminal law.

Constitution of the Criminal Law by Lindsay Farmer Constitution of the Criminal Law, Hardback (January 2013)

The third book in the Criminalization series examines the constitutionalization of criminal law. It considers how the criminal law is constituted through the political processes of the state; how the agents of the criminal law can be answerable to it themselves; and finally how the criminal law can be constituted as part of the international order.

Structures of the Criminal Law by Lindsay Farmer Structures of the Criminal Law, Hardback (December 2011)

The second book in the Criminalization series examines the structures of criminal law - the internal structure of the law itself; the place of criminal law within the larger structure of law; and the relationships between legal structures and social and political structures.
