(End of) summer sentencing reading list
Though you can't tell from the weather, the summer is coming to an end for most legal academics. (Like Hastings and Notre Dame, the new crop of first-year law students arrived on campus this week at Ohio State.) The end of the summer often brings a new crop of papers on SSRN with some sentencing coverage, and here are some (in addition to the important paper on appeal waivers) that have caught my eye:
- The Political Constitution of Criminal Justice by Professor William J. Stuntz
- Against Prediction: Sentencing, Policing, and Punishing in an Actuarial Age by Professor Bernard E. Harcourt
- 'An Extraordinarily Beautiful Document': Jefferson's Bill for Proportioning Crimes and Punishments and the Challenge of Republican Punishment by Professor Markus Dirk Dubber
- The New Rehabilitation by Professor Daniel M. Filler
- Originalism and Formalism in Criminal Procedure: The Triumph of Justice Scalia, the Unlikely Friend of Criminal Defendants? by Professor Stephanos Bibas

Thanks Doc for recommending 'Against Prediction' - interesting stuff ...
Speaking as a Texan though, it strikes me that surely you CANNOT be complaining about the summertime heat living in Ohio! That's just flat ungrateful. Let me tell you about heat, grueling, sweltering, HEAT ... ;-)
Good luck in the new school year.
