About the Author:

Michael Tonry and Richard Frase are both at University of Minnesota Law School.

Review:

Sentencing and Sanctions in Western Countries is an outstanding comparative study and it is almost impossible to do justice to such a collection in a brief review. It will, no doubt, become an essential reference point for anyone interested in the complex, somewhat tortuous, relationship
between sentencing policy and crime and punishment." - - The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice (Vol.41, no.4, September 2002)

"Sentencing and Sanctions in Western Countries is a significant step forward in establishing the comparative study of sentencing reform as a subject of importance to the policy analyst as well as the criminal lawyer. Tonry and Frase have assembled an all star cast of international authorities
and generated a well organized volume that integrates the individual contributions into a coherent whole. The result is a readable book that will become a basic reference on a major topic."-Franklin E. Zimring, William G. Simon Professor of Law and Director of the Earl Warren Legal Institute at the
University of California, Berkeley

"For the policy maker, researcher, academic, or anyone who has serious interests and concerns about sentencing, the advice is simple: Read this book. You will not be disappointed. It investigates the relationship of sentencing policy to crime and punishment practices and the social and
political climate of several western nations, including Finland, Germany, Australia, England and Wales, the United States, and the Netherlands. The book reminds us of the importance of developing a broader perspective on sentencing, looking at international standards of acceptability and elaborating
the cross-national "project" of sentencing reform."-Anthony N. Doob, Centre of Criminology, University of Toronto

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This collection of original essays surveys the evolution of sentencing policies and practices in Western countries over the past twenty-five years. The volume consists of approximately ten essays. Six consider sentencing policy strategies and practices in major western countries, including Australia, England/Wales, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United States. Each is written by a recognized expert from that part of the world. The remaining essays consider developments and subjects that cross national boundaries. Just a few of the subjects touched upon include plea-bargaining, community service and electronic monitoring, standards of use of incarceration, and legal perspectives on sentencing policy developments in western countries. The goal of the book is to provide a range of scholars and students better cross-national knowledge than currently exists of how various countries sentencing laws and practices differ, when and why they have changed over time, and with what effects. Increasingly, countries are likely to look across nation boundaries for boundaries for solutions to pressing sentencing-policy problems. There exists, however, no scholarly literature on the subject.
