Description
This book argues that abusive punishments are deeply rooted in authoritarian states and have been exported from Western countries such as Britain and the United States 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.
