Critically assess the Strengths and Weaknesses of the Classical School of Criminology - The man credited with the birth of the classical school was Cesaer Beccaria (1738-1794), who emerged during the enlightenment period of the eighteenth century.

Farner (cited in Taylor et al 1973) a nineteenth century commentator on Beccaria asserts : “Whatever improvement our penal laws have undergone in the last hundred years is due primarily to Beccaria, and, to an extent that has not always been recognised....   [tags: Criminology] 1675 words
