This major study advances an interpretation of criminal justification defenses that views them as an integral component of the structure of the criminal law. The book extends the traditional scope of the legal and philosophical discussion of justification defenses. It integrates philosophical analysis with a consideration of contemporary applications, it shows how these defenses are key components of criminal law, and it explores the relationship between legal and moral justification.
