Sentencing in Australia is the most up-to-date explanation available of sentencing law and practice across Australia.

The tenth edition of this national work strengthens its position as an authoritative source of information on sentencing law and the preferred treatment of the subject for practitioners and students alike.

Sentence appeals constitute the vast majority of the work of appellate courts and this title provides a thorough, coherent and much needed explication of this complex area, which often involves a wide range of interacting and sometimes competing factors.
