By Richard A. Bauman

Punishment was once an vital portion of the Roman justice process and as debatable because it is this present day. Bauman examines the mechanics of the administering of punishment and the philosophical ideals from which attitudes to penalty have been born. The emphasis is put on crimes opposed to the general public throughout the Republic and Principate with much less dialogue of both civil circumstances or concerns. specific reference is made to alterations in attitudes in regards to the dying penalty.
