Online First articles available Criminal Law and Philosophy fills a gap in the scholarly literature by providing a platform for articles that take a philosophical perspective on any issue in the broad field of crime and punishment. Topics addressed include crime and criminalization; the content, principles, and structure of substantive criminal law; criminal justice and the criminal process; and punishment and sentencing. Contributions from a range of philosophical schools and approaches are encouraged, in particular from both analytically oriented philosophers and from those who draw more from contemporary continental philosophy. Moreover, the journal publishes articles with an historical focus on earlier philosophical discussions of crime and punishment as well as articles with a more contemporary focus.

Keynes argued that Martin was 'a little too full perhaps of good will' towards Stalin, and that any doubts about Stalin's rule had 'been swallowed down if possible'. The magazine defended the Soviet collectivization policy, but also said the policy had 'proceeded far too quickly and lost the cooperation of farmers'.
Although sympathetic to aspects of the Soviet Union, Wells disagreed with Stalin on several issues. This number helped the magazine become a key player in Labour politics. The paper welcomed Labour's general election victory but took a critical line on the new government's foreign policy.
