Paul Garfinkel Honored with the Helen and Howard R. Marraro Prize

Series author Paul Garfinkel has been honored by the American Historical Association’s Helen and Howard R. Marraro Prize for 2017 for his Criminal Law in Liberal and Fascist Italy (Cambridge University Press, 2016). The award recognizes outstanding work in Italian history or Italian-American relations. Garfinkel’s book is the first comprehensive history of the development of penal policy between the period of Italian unification and the rise of fascism, offering an important revisionist account of the respective roles of liberal and Lombrosian ‘positivist’ jurists in the development of the new criminal codes.
