Distributive Principles of Criminal Law by Paul H. Robinson
Book DescriptionThe rules governing who will be punished and how much determine a society's success in two of its most fundamental functions: doing justice and protecting citizens from crime. Drawing from the existing theoretical literature and adding to it recent insights from the social sciences, Paul Robinson describes the nature of the practical challenge in setting rational punishment principles, how past efforts have failed, and the alternatives that have been tried. He ultimately proposes a principle for distributing criminal liability and punishment that will be most likely to do justice and control crime. Paul Robinson, is one of the world's leading criminal law experts. He has been writing about criminal liability and punishment issues for three decades, and has published dozens of influential articles in the best scholarly journals. This long-awaited volume is a brilliant synthesis of social science research and legal reasoning that brings together three decades of work in a compelling line of argument that addresses all of the important issues in assessing liability and punishment.

Pirates, Prisoners, and Lepers, Hardback (February 2016)
Examines an array of natural experiments and accidents of human history to explore the fundamental nature of how human beings act when beyond the scope of the law. Paul and Sarah Robinson draw on real-life stories to suggest that humans are predisposed to be cooperative, within limits.
Intuitions of Justice and the Utility of Desert, Hardback (May 2013)
Research suggests that people of all demographics have nuanced and sophisticated notions of justice. Intuitions of Justice and the Utility of Desert sketches the contours of a wide range of lay judgments of justice, touching many if not most of the issues that penal code drafters or policy makers must face.
Law without Justice, Hardback (June 2005)» View all books by Paul H. Robinson
Offering a look at American criminal law, this book demonstrates that cases with unjust outcomes are not always irregular or unpredictable. It aims to show that the criminal law sometimes chooses not to give defendants what they deserve: that is, unsatisfying results occur even when the system works as it is designed to work.

Author Biography - Paul H. Robinson
Paul H. Robinson, the Colin S. Diver Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania, is one of the world's leading experts on criminal law. Holding law degrees from U.C.L.A., Harvard, and Cambridge, he served as a federal prosecutor, as counsel for the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Criminal Law, and as one of the original commissioners of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, where he was the lone dissenter to promulgation of what are the current federal sentencing guidelines. Among his dozen books are the standard lawyer's reference book on criminal law defenses, an internationally known Oxford monograph on criminal law theory, a highly-regarded criminal law treatise, a popular innovative case studies course book, and a ground-breaking empirical study of the conflict between criminal law rules and lay intuitions of justice. He also has published scholarly articles in nearly ever top law review. Robinson, who has given scholarly lectures and assisted in criminal code reform throughout the world, led two recent criminal code reform projects in the United States and, under United Nations sponsorship, directed the effort in producing the first Islamic criminal code to use a modern code format.
