Very Good- Used in trade paperback. A clean, tight copy. Moderate fading and aging to the spine and covers, some edgewear, aging to the text. "A JUST MEASURE OF PAIN returns to the moment in eighteenth-century England when the modern penitentiary and its ambiguous legacy were born. In depicting how the whip, the brand, and the gallows-public punishments once meant to cow the unruly poor into passivity-come to be replaced by the prison and the idea that the criminal poor should be involved in their own rehabilitation, Michael Ignatieff documents the rise of a new conception of class relation, and with it a new philosophy of punishment, one directed not at the body but at the mind."-from the back cover.; 8vo 8"-9" tall; 257 pages.
