Developing a radically different approach to questions of responsibility and subjectivity, it combines appreciation of the institutional and historical context in which criminal law is practiced with an informed understanding of the law itself. Drawing on original research into the development of Scottish criminal justice, it offers the first full-length critique of modern criminal law theory.
