Appraising Strict Liability

Oxford University Press (2005)

Abstract
This book is a collection of original essays offering the first full-length consideration of the problem of strict liability in the criminal law: that is, the problem of criminal offences that allow a defendant to be convicted without proof of fault. Because of its potential to convict blameless persons, strict liability is a highly controversial phenomenon in the criminal law. Including Anglo-American and European perspectives, the contributions provide a sustained and wide-ranging examination of the fundamental issues. The breadth and depth of the chapters combine to present readers with a sophisticated analysis of the place and legitimacy of strict liability in the criminal law.
