Crimes of Punishment examines four key, interrelated social methods of. .The Crimes of Punishment differs from Menninger s book in covering the many changes that have occurred in prisons since 1968.

Crimes of Punishment examines four key, interrelated social methods of punishment. In covering the full scope of our contemporary justice system Dr. Dorpat brings to the forefront those who are often overlooked or dismissed: the victims of crime.

The title CRIMES OF PUNISHMENT literally means the crimes committed in the name of punishment. Dr. Dorpat argues and offers plenty of evidence that punishment is an ineffective method of correction and results in more violence. Even though the book discusses legal forms of punishment in the United States today, the author sees them not as they are designated, but as they should be designated. He also argues for a more effective and humane method of correction, which requires replacing the idea of justice as revenge with the idea of restorative justice, which helps to heal the psychological wounds of the victims of crime.

The title CRIMES OF PUNISHMENT literally means the crimes committed in the name of punishment. Even though the book discusses legal forms of punishment in the United States today, the author sees them not as they are designated, but as they should be designated. The author, the late Theodore L. Dorpat, was an authority on the subject of the effects of punishment--whether the corporal punishment of children or the dehumanizing experience of imprisonment in the United States. The book is both scholarly and easy to use as a reference book on these subjects. I've found it too depressing to read straight through, but invaluable as a reference. Dr. Dorpat argues and offers plenty of evidence that punishment is an ineffective method of correction and results in more violence. He also argues for a more effective and humane method of correction, which requires replacing the idea of justice as revenge with the idea of restorative justice, which helps to heal the psychological wounds of the victims of crime.

Some other books offer more intense examinations of individual forms of punishment--for instance, Dorpat faults Philip Greven's SPARE THE CHILD for omitting some psychological effects of corporal punishment, but he quotes that book as if he hasn't read it, since a very large part of Greven's book is about the effects Dorpat implies are not discussed. Also, I literally couldn't put down SPARE THE CHILD until I read it straight through. CRIMES OF PUNISHMENT is a more recent book, however, and includes a detailed table of contents, footnotes, a 14-page bibliography, and an index. I recommend it as a reference book on violence in the United States. Incidentally, the paperback jacket notes the book category as "US / Intelligence Services / Government"!

I regret Dr. Dorpat's passing as I never had a chance to thank him for his work. I'm a recovering mental health compromised patient. Viewed nearly universally as being benign and frivolent in degree of psychological damage effects I was and am still living with a psychosexual damage, sexually expressed as a spanking fetish, which is something the mental health professional community recently has changed regarding their standard psychological diagnostic manual as no longer being considered a mental health illness. For most of my adult sexual life such odd masochistic fetish desires strictly regressive in desire to be spanked as a little boy by a strict authoritarian mother figure, the result from being truamatized by the widely accepted cultural and religiously promoted practice of child corporal punishment by parents and other child caregivers. Ten years ago I returned to my original family of origin to find one of my brothers systematically abusing all remaining siblings and my father after my mothers passing. All were lead to accept and ingnore the abuse. I rallied an intervention that eventually led to my brother's discharge from the family business and his self imposed exile of family activities since. Dr. Dorpats insight in his book as it relates to my abusive brother as explained by the uncanny resemblence to the psychologically disturbed infamous child Hitler psychologically explained and described by Dorpat was profound and acurate. Little did I know then, I would later set out to search my own psychologically wounded self, first in internet social net work to find similarly psychosexually wounded masochistic and sadistic fetish co-enablers, then truth in psychotherapy, with it's psychologically painful unveiling of sexual fetishism addiction masking denied dissociation from the trauma of formally ritualized corporal punishment by my mother including authoritarian ordered punishment sentencing, physical postioning for the pain infliction with deliberate humiliation in forced semi nudity and genital exposure with subsequent sexual arousal unidentified at that young age. His message is timeless yet ignored, shame, especially of ones sense of sexual self is as destructive as that of the polar opposite in Hitler's ego exaggerations of self. For those who believe and live in denial that shame and humiliation of punishment is effective without mental health costs to the recipient I recommend this book.

The subject of my review says it all. The culture of violence in this country is unreal. If we don't do something to change that, history will repeat itself. With this terrible economic downturn, we will have something on our hands hear in America much worse than the Holocaust.
