The History of PunishmentBook - 2003
This series covers every aspect of a topic that has fascinated human beings since the beginning of time--crime and punishment. Crime, the detection of criminals, and the punishment of offenders has taken many forms throughout history, and these 20 volumes examine the subject from every angle. Find out about the way the judicial system has evolved, and examine the development of punishments through the ages, from the biblical notion of an "eye for an eye" to modern penal systems that emphasize rehabilitation over punishment. Discover the terrible punishments of times past, from the "death of a thousand cuts" to the cruel and fiendish tortures of the Spanish Inquisition.
