This volume explores highly topical aspects of proportionality theory that require examination and further analysis.

von Hirsch and Ashworth explore the relevance of the principle of proportionality to the sentencing of young offenders, the possible reasons for departing from the principle when sentencing dangerous offenders, and the application of the principle to socially deprived offenders.

Their examination of arguments and counter-arguments culminates in a re-statement of the main criteria for proportionate sentencing. theory, and this volume broadens the theory to deal with important contemporary issues in crime and punishment.
