[About the book] Reoffending is the bugbear of the modern justice system. This comparative history of punishment in Europe examines how reoffending and repeat offenders have been theorized and dealt with in practice from the Middle Ages until the present day, and in doing so, offers some sort of answer to the failure of penal institutions to correct.
