‘Proportionality in Crime Control and Criminal Justice’ is edited by Emmanouil Billis, Nandor Knust and Jon Petter Rui and published by Hart Publishing [Oxford, UK; 408 pp; ISBN (Hardback): 9781509938605]. This volume seeks to reassess the old and to analyse and develop novel approaches to the notion of proportionality in criminal matters and the new security architecture. It offers an interdisciplinary and cross-jurisdictional exploration of highly topical, proportionality-related issues pertinent to penal theory and legal philosophy, criminalisation policies, security and anti-terrorism strategies, alternative types of justice delivery, and supranational enforcement as well as human rights and international criminal and humanitarian law. The 21 contributing authors from the UK, the US, Continental Europe and Scandinavia are leading scholars and practitioners in the fields of criminal law and justice, public and comparative law, legal and political theory and legal philosophy.
