Some recommended sentencing reading after we get federal election results
While we all await election results, I though it might be fun to recommend some timely and timeless older sentencing literature from SSRN, all of which that seems worth reading (or re-reading) during the upcoming transition period. I doubt anyone dealing with issues other than federal sentencing law and policy will have time or energy to read (or re-read) everything on this list, but I like the idea of providing through the help of SSRN a post-election policy primer from academics.
So here, in alphabetical order, is a baker's dozen of recommended titles and links (click through to see authors and dates):
- The Future of Federal Sentencing Policy: Learning Lessons from Republican Judicial Appointees in the Guidelines Era
- A Map of Sentencing and A Compass for Judges: Sentencing Information Systems, Transparency and the Next Generation of Reform
- The More Things Change: A Psychological Case Against Allowing the Federal Sentencing Guidelines to Stay the Same in Light of Gall, Kimbrough, and New Understandings of Reasonableness Review
Needless to say, I could add dozens more articles to this list, but I think I have provides a useful running start on useful reading for those who will be working in the forthcoming new federal administration and their allies. Of course, additions to the list (or thoughts on this intentionally eclectic list) are welcome via the comments.
