"Impressive.... Kramer and Ulmer provide a rare combination of profound insider information and theoretical reasoning with sophisticated empirical work. Anyone concerned with sentencing guidelines or reform must read this book." - Joachim J. Salvesberg, University of Minnesota "A fascinating story of one state's struggle to craft both meaningful and politically palatable sentencing guidelines. The authors provide a comprehensive and theoretically informed evaluation of the complex issues involved. The result is essential reading for anyone interested in sentencing reforms and their impact." - Cassia Spohn, Arizona State University"
