A Fundamental Mistake. Human nature, coercion and bad behaviour
By Graham Cliff (MBBS 1972)

About the book:
Since time immemorial, civil order and control have been secured through the threat of punishment for misbehaviour. This book - an amalgam of applied psychology, social science, criminology, and political philosophy, suitable for the intelligent layperson - explains why reliance on the traditional punitive approach alone is not only morally questionable and psychologically misguided, but may also foster the very problem it seeks to ameliorate. Be prepared to have your assumptions challenged, and to do some fresh, lateral thinking.
