In stark contrast with practically every other area of criminal law development during the 19th century, strict and vicarious liability were subject to scarcely any extrajudicial commentary or evaluation. And certainly no contemporary theoretical analysis of the general significance of these forms of liability was offered by general criminal law treatises. This chapter discusses the historical development of the concepts of strict and vicarious liability.
