About this product
- DescriptionPunishment and Shame: A Philosophical Study reveals the ecomic and religious underpinnings to modern tions of crime and punishment. Contra Michel Foucault's claim that modern penal practices witness a revolution in Western moral sensibilities, awakened by Enlightenment ideals, Hamblet shows that punishment practices in the West grew out of Protestant moralizations, capitalist greed, and the need for a cheap labor pool.
