"The purpose of this book.is to protest against a criminal and penal system that is founded on vengeance. Punishment as a concept is the bad thing, and capital punishment is only the most dramatic form of punishment. The penology of the future is treatment, not to fit the crime, but to fit the prisoner. Someday we will look back upon our criminal and penal process with the same horrified wonder as we now look back upon the Spanish Inquisition."
