On law enforcement

First edition of the distinguished German economist and philosopher's work on law enforcement. First a professor of philosophy in Halle, Jakob (1759-1827) accepted the Russian government's invitation in 1807 to become a professor of economic science at Kharkoff University after the University of Halle was suppressed. His quick mastery of the Russian language made him a favourite of the minister Speransky, who appointed him as a member of the government's finance commission in 1809 and then as the president of the commission for the revision of criminal law in 1810. He returned to Germany in 1816. In his economic works "he closely followed Adam Smith, whilst at the same time seeking to place in a clearer light the fundamental conceptions of the science" (Palgrave II, p. 471).
