Criminal Law and the Regulation of Vice

Criminal Law and the Regulation of Vice Book CoverThis edited volume provides readings for an advanced course in substantive criminal law organized around considering whether vice behaviors—gambling, narcotics, commercial and deviate sexual practices, pornography, drinking—are the proper subjects of criminal prohibition, and, if so, with what means of enforcement and punishment. Vice behaviors have been the subject of radical changes over the past generation, making them an ideal laboratory for the study of the law reform process. The materials used include statistical data, philosophical, historical and legal scholarship as well as policy analysis.
