This two-volume work is an exposition of the history of seminal penological thought and practice covering the period 1557-1900. Based principally on period primary source literature, the thirty-eight chapters in this anthology bring into sharp focus - the lives of the great European and American pioneering reformers in penology; the most important pioneering experiments in prison and reformatory discipline; and the histories and contributions of the major societies responsible for imparting impetus to prison reform in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
