From a framework of core principles, The Limits of Criminal Law explores the normative and performative limits of criminal law at the borders of crime with tort, non-criminal enforcement, medical law, business regulation, administrative sanctions, terrorism and intelligence law. It carefully juxtaposes and compares English and German law on each of these borders, drawing out underlying concepts and building a detailed picture of what shapes criminal law, where its limits come from, and what might motivate legal systems to strain, ignore or strengthen those limits.
