Description - Punishment and Civilization by John Pratt
Punishment and Civilization examines how a framework of punishment that suited the values and standards of the civilized world came to be set in place from around 1800 to the late 20th century. In Punishment and Civilization, John Pratt draws on research about prison architecture, clothing, diet, hygienic arrangements and changes in penal language to establish this. Throughout this text theoretical ideas and concepts are accessibly introduced and illustrated with a wide range of examples from the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
