The Crisis of Criminal Law in Comparative-Historical Perspective

Markus D. Dubber

  • Sheds new light on the legitimacy crisis of contemporary criminal law in the "dual penal state"
  • Explores the deep historical roots of the "penal paradox" of state punishment in liberal polities
  • Employs a systemic comparative approach focused on the US and Germany as paradigmatic common-law and civil-law countries
