This volume synthesizes the historical, theoretical, religious and philosophical areas of penology in the past four centuries. The pragmatic and illustrative nature of the text aims to provide a better understanding of penology, and a more consistent and congruent development of their applications of correctional policy and practices. The text includes case studies which show the broad spectrum of criminals and the variety of procedures employed with prisoners.
