A full-color history of the cruel and violent ways in which humans have meted out punishment-from early civilizations to the present. Also bothersome is that there are zero references to the information given in the book. Besides that, I learned some things I was not aware of. Not a terrible book, but certainly not a great one. Throughout history, cultures around the world have found justice for the most extreme crimes by condemning the guilty to death. Retribution has been sought by many methods, from beheading, garroting, entombment, and burning to modern means such as electrocution and lethal injection. For the infliction of torturous pain, even more ingenious devices have been employed. While torture has usually been carried out behind.

This is not just a history of torture and execution, but punishment and anything that has to do with ways to die. I have to say that as humans, this volume shows that, if anything, we are trying to perfect death and killing.

The history of torture and execution: From early civilization through medieval Times to the Present; The Lyons Press, USA Klingten R, Eugene, Kroll M, Berry, Rose, Mike. Perspectives on literacy. Southern Illinois Literacy Press. It is imperative that both men and women collectively diagnose masculine relationships that are borne out of the system of patriarchy.

Throughout history, cultures around the world have found justice for the most extreme crimes by condemning the guilty to death. Retribution has been served by many methods, from beheading, garroting, entombment, and burning, to modern means such as electrocution and lethal injection. And in the process of inflicting tortuous pain, even more ingenious devices have been employed. While torture has usually been carried out behind closed doors, it is only recently that executions have ceased to be a popular and public spectacle. The History of Torture and Execution examines these fascinating but grisly subjects by time, region, and method. Beginning with the often crude methods of meting out justice used by early and first millennium civilizations, and evolving from the sadistic tools of the medieval age to the modern search for humane execution, controversial issues are authoritatively covered.
  • I love reading about torture and execution. If I'm not mistaken, it did not have scaphism.

  • My grandson is really into history, even the gory battles and thrives on knowing more about warfare, prisoners and things like that. He was happy with the book.

  • For anyone who is interested in the dark history of our world, this is a very informative book to have in your collection. This is not just a history of torture and execution, but punishment and anything that has to do with ways to die. I have to say that as humans, this volume shows that, if anything, we are trying to perfect death and killing.

  • If you have no idea. If you have never read widely or if you are fairly unaware of man's inhumanity to man as applied by the great arbiter of justice: the law, then this is the book for you.

    However, if you are reasonably well read, or have some idea of the creativity man wastes on causing pain to his fellow man, then it is a total waste of money. I bought it as my first book on a subject that I know little about and yet found nothing new and some incorrect and if i wanted to look at pictures I could have looked up El Jazeer.

    Perhaps the "Golden Book of the History of Judicial Murder" might be a better title.

    I was and am quite disappointed.

  • Wonderful!! Came so much sooner than expected.

  • Actually this book is a skim over things you already know. Not a complete waste of time, but I am certain there are more comprehensive texts available.

  • Really great item! Sent right on time! I would definitely buy from this seller again! Great deal on the prices as well! A BIG thank you to you!!!

  • I was looking for information on various types of execution for a writing project and assumed this book would explain the how it killed, why it was used, and when in was used of various executions. I only read about a third of the way in before giving up on the book. The author focused more on the blotched beheadings and the innocents killed rather than providing the rational behind why the punishment was used. Hangings were portrayed as always slow strangulation, but I knew trapdoor-style hanging broke the neck. (I did see that this was covered much later in the book, but the initial section on hanging didn't mention this.)

    He often did describe what offenses merited that type of execution. However, he only gave a limited view of most of the topics. He only talked about the Bible reasons for stoning--yet stoning is used even today. I got a better description of how and why stoning is done in a story about a modern Muslim woman being stoned than I did in this book. That book gave a chilling but not gory description. This book just went with gory. Each page had huge pictures of death and torture.

    There was little of real substance about that method in the text. Sometimes we're told when a method was no longer used, but there was no timeline so I could know if a certain execution was in use in a certain place at a certain time. It was useless to me for real research, and it made me feel like I was a watcher at a public execution--reading of death for entertainment purposes. So I stopped reading it.
