Get the two required books.The bookstore should have the Duff and Garland text.It is in print, but the Murphy text is out of print.I have the Murphy text.You can purchase a used copy of it from me (in Room 536) for $5.
No matter how you get the two texts, you must read the Introduction in each before our first class meeting.The Introduction in Duff and Garland runs from pages 1 through 34 (excluding the extensive bibliography that follows).The Introduction in Murphy runs from pages 1 through 5.This is dense, non-casebook, academic reading.Allow sufficient time to digest it.Be prepared to participate in a class discussion of the philosophical and sociological theories underpinning our proposed theories of punishment.
