Blumenson on Retributivism

Blumenson ericEric D. Blumenson (Suffolk University Law School) has posted Retributivism (THE SOCIAL HISTORY OF CRIME & PUNISHMENT IN AMERICA: AN ENCYCLOPEDIA, Wilbur Miller, ed., Sage Reference, 2012) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This encyclopedia entry, which appears in THE SOCIAL HISTORY OF CRIME & PUNISHMENT IN AMERICA: AN ENCYCLOPEDIA (Wilbur Miller, ed., Sage Reference, 2012). describes retributivism as a justificatory theory of punishment, examines fundamental critiques of the theory, and notes a "mixed model" that seeks to combine retributivism with consequentialist justifications for criminal punishment.
