Of Crimes and Punishment

By Cesare Beccaria-Bonesana / Philip H. Nicklin, on 1 January 1764

This is a highly thought-provoking work where Beccaria-Bonesana has explained his ideas against the use of torture and capital punishments. He has produced a humanitarian spirit in the dispensation of laws. This work is important as the views expressed here, were not regarded either in his times or now.
