dc.descriptionThis analytical paper investigates the significance and meaning of ‘probation values’ and challenges the enterprise of generating ‘lists’ of values without sufficient regard to the practices they enjoin or rule out. The conceptual link between values and action is thus reaffirmed. The paper also argues that since punishment tries to give effect to so many different objectives and to express many incompatible attitudes, punishment is always likely to occasion frustration and disappointment.en
