Stevens on Private Rights and Public Wrongs

Robert Hedley Stevens (University of Oxford) has posted Private Rights and Public Wrongs (book of essays edited by Matthew Dyson, "Unraveling Tort and Crime", Forthcoming) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This paper is in two parts. First, the analytic question of how we distinguish crimes from torts will be addressed. Second a normative claim will be made that Mill’s Harm Principle is both too narrow and too broad in determining what kind of conduct can be criminalised.
