The issue of "punishment" is central to criminology. In this study the author reassesses the significant arguments involved. It ranges from a comparative analysis of penal policies in various countries to philosophical debates about whether punishment is compatible with a just social order. The author puts forward the notion of "redress" as a key concept that can considerably advance our understanding of the politics of punishment.
