This text examines monetary sanctions set in the broader context of the relationship between power, discipline and money. It explores the sociology of the fine, looking beyond the Foucauldian view of the penal system which dominates contemporary analysis. Using empirical material it compares theories of resource-based punishments like the fine and bodily punishments like imprisonment. Using examples from the Roman-law based criminal justice system in Scotland, but theoretically relevant to all penal systems worldwide, the author opens up the debate over the place of monetary sanctions within the penal system.show more
