Punishment & Society is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes the highest quality original research and scholarship dealing with punishment, penal institutions and penal control, broadly conceived.

Each issue includes a lively Book Review section, reviewing the most important new books and publications. It features review essays, symposia and debates as well as shorter reviews, ensuring readers are kept up-to-date on what has been published in this expanding field.
