BOOKS upon the subject of punishment are usually written by humanitarians, cranks, or persons with some sort of a doctrinal axe to grind—theological or psychological. Dr. Ewing, however, contributes a thoroughly well-thought-out and well-informed dissertation, which will be read with profit by magistrates, schoolmasters, and clergymen, as well as with sustained delight by philosophers and students of ethics.
