The second edition follows the tradition of the first edition – by continuing to draw together the many threads of sentencing pronouncements and distil them into a coherent set of sentencing principles. These principles are organised in a reader-friendly format in four parts:

 

(a)       general sentencing considerations – reviews fundamental sentencing doctrines that underpin the legitimacy and foundation of the sentencing process;

(b)       specific sentencing considerations – explores the types of factors that may aggravate or mitigate the gravity of an offence, and hence its sentence;

(c)       sentencing options and legislative sanctions – discusses issues relating to the selection of an appropriate sentencing option; and

(d)       sentencing decision – examines the principles and issues relating to the delivery, alteration and challenge of a sentencing decision.

 

The second edition provides a comprehensive update on numerous developments that have taken place in Singapore’s sentencing jurisprudence since the publication of the first edition in 2009. Through in-depth commentaries and a new chapter on Community Sentences, the second edition covers developments in Singapore’s sentencing jurisprudence up to January 2019. Since the publication of the first edition, several key pieces of sentencing-related legislation (including the Criminal Procedure Code, the Penal Code and the Prisons Act) underwent many major amendments; and more than 700 judgments on sentencing were issued by the Court of Appeal and High Court (including about 150 sentencing guideline judgments).

In a world of rapidly worsening environmental conditions, and amidst a growing urgent interest in best practices for addressing the crisis, Singapore is often lauded for its exemplary approach to environmental management, and its environmental law is sometimes credited for this achievement. However, while Singapore’s environmental laws have contributed to progress towards sustainable development, there is room for improvement. Environmental Law in Singapore is the first and only textbook on Singapore environmental law. It is an essential reference written for legal practitioners in and outside Singapore; researchers and students; as well as businesses, civil society and policy makers who want to gain a more comprehensive and detailed understanding of the subject. The book explains the subject in the context of international and regional environmental law and the Singapore legal system. It describes, explains and critiques the applicable legal principles, legislative provisions and cases. Topics covered go beyond the traditional areas of criminal and civil liabilities in environmental regulation such as pollution control, waste management, nature conservation and climate change, to also include environmental governance issues such as procedural and substantive environmental rights. This book also considers developments in other jurisdictions where appropriate, for insights into potential areas for legislative or judicial reform.
