This book argues that abusive punishments are particularly deeply rooted in authoritarian states and in some Western countries such as Britain and the USA, from which they have been exported over past centuries. The book surveys a variety of psychological, physically constraining, custodial, corporal and capital punishments. The implicit punitive content of judicial processes such as trial, as well as treatments such as behavioural therapy, may have as much psychological impact as more explicitly physical punishments.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is an important book and one that I would certainly choose to have close by my side. There is a rare humanity and wisdom about it.' - Greg Mantle, Anglia Polytechnic University, Chelmsford

'This is at times not an easy book to read, but it deals in a profound and comprehensive fashion with a subject which is of fundamental importance to our society. The vast bibliography helps to make this a very useful textbook.' - David Mathieson, Probation Journal
