Punishment and Civilization

Penal Tolerance and Intolerance in Modern Society

by Pratt, John

Description
This book examines how a framework of punishment that suited the values of the civilized world came to be set in place from around 1800 to the late 20th century. John Pratt draws on research about prison architecture, clothing, diet, hygienic arrangements and changes in penal language to establish this.
