The History of Incarceration (Incarceration Issues: Punishment, Reform, and Rehabilitation) by Roger Smith

This book covers the history of punishment and incarceration from the Code of Hammurabi in ancient Babylon, through the dungeons of medieval Europe to the birth of modern prisons more than a century ago, and finally arrives at todays massive penal systems. Spanning centuries and continents, the book explains how ideas that began centuries ago contributed to our modern assumptions and practices. The history of prisons is long and ugly-but by examining the diverse ways various societies administered justice in the past, readers will gain clearer insight into punishment and incarceration in our own world.
