"Although empathetic, Farrington maintains a historian's objective eye."--"Publisher's Weekly. "Images graphically show bodies nailed to crosses; suspects tied to ducking stools; and the ruthless courts of the Inquisition. Discussions of human sacrifice, ordeal by fire or water, the dark days of juvenile justice, and capital punishment reveal the astonishing array of clever and cruel sentences devised by those determined to deliver the ultimate punishments.
