From the Publisher
"Systematic research on the social psychological functions of punishment has been scarce, and this broad-gauged and comprehensive edited volume brings together many excellent chapters on active research programs being conducted in Europe and America. The editors have brought together a book that is now where punishment scholars will go to acquaint themselves with work that relates to their own lines of inquiry. Others will go to learn what is happening in what is now a fast-moving and exciting research area. Our gratitude to the editors."
–John Darley, Warren Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs, Princeton University, USA
"Social Psychology of Punishment of Crime is a tour de force of cutting edge research in the psychology of punishment. The editors have assembled the unique international perspectives of rising stars and established experts from Psychology, Sociology and Criminology in single complete volume. The work is both empirical and theoretical, and readers will find it to be fresh and enduring."
–Kevin M. Carlsmith, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Colgate University, USA
