Sarat chs. 57 (“Punishment, Power, & Justice”) pp. 480-489; optional: 58 (“U.S. v. Bailey”) pp. 490- 500 1. Has punishment ("penality") become more just over time? If so, how? Why are modern punishments more just than ancient (800-1800 C.E.) ones? What is the postmodern era of social control, and how are social control techniques applied in this new era? Is application biased? Yes, punishment has become more juss. Unlike back then, we have today legal proceedings and the confessions are not as the result of torture. Nowadays we care more about to find the truth, instead of just putting on a punishment show for social control (like they did in pre modern time). Nowadays, punishment is supposed to be proportional to the crime committed, but that was not the case

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
