This book argues that abusive punishments are particularly deeply rooted in authoritarian states and in some way Western countries such as Britain and the United States, from which they have been exported over past centuries. The Abuses of Punishment 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 behavioral therapy, may have as much psychological impact as more explicitly physical punishments.
