The Challenge of a Model Penal Code

Herbert Wechsler

This influential book presents a comprehensive analysis of the American legal system and proposes a radical reformulation of criminal law. The author argues that the current system is characterized by a confusing array of inconsistent and arbitrary rules, and proposes a unified Model Penal Code that would provide a clear and consistent framework for criminal law. Drawing on his experience as a leading legal scholar and practitioner, Wechsler provides a compelling argument for the need for fundamental reform of the American legal system.
