Rounding up some recent sentencing scholarship new to SSRN

In this space, I typically only flag "brand new" scholarship when if first appears on SSRN and which has not been previously available in print or elsewhere online.  But I have seen a number of notable and still timely pieces with 2019 publication dates that have just recently been posted to SSRN.  Because I always benefit from additions to my summer reading list, I figured I would flag this quartet of "new to SSRN" pieces in this one post:

What Makes the Death Penalty Arbitrary? (And Does It Matter if It Is?) by Chad Flanders

18 U.S.C. section 3553(a)'s Undervalued Sentencing Command: Providing a Federal Criminal Defendant with Rehabilitation, Training, and Treatment in 'the Most Effective Manner' by Erica Zunkel

The Bureaucratic Takeover of Criminal Sentencing by Maimon Schwarzschild

Categorically Redeeming Graham v Florida and Miller v Alabama: Why the Eighth Amendment Guarantees All Juvenile Defendants a Constitutional Right to a Parole Hearing by Parag Dharmavarapu
