Friedrich Nietzsche theorised that punishment was always aimed at the guilty. But who really is the guilty party: the punished or those inflicting punishment? The thirteen multidisciplinary chapters presented here get behind the thinking of the paradigmatic facets of punishment, showing it is not quite as straightforward as one might imagine, and that punishment can take on some rather inhumane and grotesque forms. Looking at such themes as: 'silencing' the disenfranchised using threats and inflictions of bodily pain and deformation; examining the dehumanisation and demonising of offenders; and theories and case studies to appraise ways punishment can be improved, are discussed in this volume.
