Aviram on Decisions to Imprison
Hadar Aviram has published a review of Rasmus Wandall's book, Decisions to Imprison: Court Decision-Making Inside and Outside the Law (Ashgate, 2007), which focuses on the question of when to imprison those convicted of crimes. Although Hadar would have liked some discussion of the impact of race and ethnicity, she found Wandall's book overall a "fascinating and important enterprise, which takes seriously what judges and other actors say, and not just what they do." The review is at 43(1) Law & Soc'y Rev. 239 (2009).
