The common purpose of Malamud Goti’s essays is to criticize the mainstream ideas regarding the punishment of state criminals and the innovations that it has imposed to the Western current ethics, and, particularly, to the deeply rooted principles of justice. These shifts tackle a wide variety of issues, from the traditional ideas about res judicata, the removal of the limitation period, and the failure of the traditional relationship between justice and the community.
