"The Big Book of Pain" offers a history of the punishments and tortures administered to offenders in all periods for which records exist. They include the peculiar punishments known as the ducking stool, the Scottish maiden, the pillory, the drunkard's cloak and the scold's bridle, and unsavoury punishments such as death by pressing, being hanged, drawn and quartered, and death by boiling.Biografía del autor:
