David F. Greenberg, Drew Humphries

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Criticism of indeterminate sentencing was initially advanced as part of a larger radical program to transform American society. Yet recent sentencing reform legislation legitimated by this criticism has taken on a con servative character. This development is documented here, and explained in terms of political and social change over the past decade.
