This renaissance can be traced in no small part to the work of a single scholar: William Stuntz. This volume brings together twelve leading American criminal justice scholars whose own writings have been profoundly influenced by Stuntz and his work. Their contributions consist of essays on subjects ranging from the political economy of substantive criminal law to the law of police investigations to the role of religion in legal scholarship all themes addressed by Stuntz in his own work. Some contributions directly analyze or respond to Stuntzs work, while others address topics or themes Stuntz wrote about from the contributors own distinctive perspective. Both as a tribute to Stuntzs work and as a source of profound new insights, the book is a milestone in the criminal justice literature.
