Summary
  • "Examining the use of corporal punishment in different settings across cultures, this revealing volume looks at why some societies accept this type of punishment, some permit it in certain situations, and some reject it altogether"-- Provided by publisher
  • "To many, spanking a child or paddling a student is as outmoded as flogging a prisoner. Yet in numerous places worldwide, including the United States, corporal punishment is still practiced in the home, at school, in religious institutions, and in prisons, and is either permitted in specific circumstances or fully accepted in all venues. This unique volume provides an insightful research-based overview of corporal punishment as implemented in a variety of venues and cultures. It is the first comprehensive analysis of practices that while often controversial, remain deeply ingrained in human culture. Corporal Punishment defines what may be humanity's oldest form of punishment both historically and in its contemporary forms, then looks at how it is currently applied to children, students, the incarcerated, and in religious settings. A series of case studies examines corporal punishment in specific regions of Bolivia, the Bahamas, Nigeria, Singapore, and Saudi Arabia to understand why certain societies have rejected this once universal approach while others continue to accept it, either within limits or without reservation"--Provided by publisher
