This book relates judgements of `deservingness' or `undeservingness' to perceived responsibility, values, liking relations, and ingroup/outgroup relations. The book presents a social-cognitive process model concerned with how people react to offenses and to the perpetrators of offenses. Studies concerned with achievement outcomes and with retributive justice, and ways in which the theoretical approach might be further developed, are described.
