About this item

What is punishment? Why do we punish? How much do we punish? What works in punishment? In this new book on American corrections, Karol M. Lucken explores some of these questions and more, revealing that some of the answers are interconnected and that conventional wisdom should not always be taken for granted.

Drawing on underlining philosophical, empirical and political issues and offering a critical discussion of the relationship between research, policy and practice, this book makes compelling and instructive reading for students taking courses in American corrections, penology and the sociology of punishment.
