    Abstract

    The article discusses methodological and interpretive issues raised by Beckett and Western's (2001) statistical analysis of US state imprisonment rates. It considers Downes’ (2001) argument that market economies generate high crime rates and high levels of punitiveness and questions whether Europe's penal history will follow that of the United States.
