The book is both broad, covering a lot of ground, but intensely shallow. The pictures are almost worth the price of admission, but the details are seriously lacking. Reads like a Time/Life book which tantalizes but does not produce anything. I bought it as research for a novel in progress and was very dissatisfied.

A ghoulish item for the coffee table with lots of pictures but little in information. Of no use to the scholar of this subject or of history in general.

Overall, not very good.
Scoreboard Bleeding
This is a dare-kind of book, full of excellent illustrations, line drawings and plates. And when a picture is worth a thousand words, then few additional words are required. Ms. Karen has stuck to this rule, and has been mercifully brief.

Not that she doesn't like writing or can write well. The 180-odd pages are full of full-page and half page illustrations, most of them of high quality. The accompanying write-up is also of good quality. It tends to be descriptive / narrative. Not much analysis is added, but then none is expected in a book of this kind.

The title of the book indicates a claim of universality: History of Punishment and Torture. However, as happens with most works of this kind, the history is only partial and limited to Western Christian societies. For instance, there is no mention of torture in non-Christian societies such as Arab countries, or Japan, China, India or South-east Asia or many of the tribal societies. American Indian tribes are also not covered. Russia is briefly mentioned but Mongolia has been left out, not even mentioned. So really, the book should have had a sub-title: History of Punishment and Torture - Last 2000 years in the Western Societies.

However, there are some gaps even in this. Nazi torture of Jews has been left out. Some juicy tid-bits of the Colonial period have also not been covered. Perhaps the author's intention is to throw a good scare into the ordinary Western reader, and in this she appears to have won hands down.

The book has been designed around seven main headings, including one on inquisition, another on witches, and then a rather long one on capital punishment. Each of the headings is sub-divided into topics. The style of writing is racy - Ms. Karen is a journalist, so this comes easy.

All in all, a good buy. Try to avoid reading it before or after a heavy meal, though.

This is a wonderful starting-point for research into the history of crime and punishment. It's chock-full of illustrations. Frankly, it's the illustrations you want to see when reading about a subject like this. There are photos and descriptions of torture implements, woodcuttings of torture chambers, and observers' accounts.
