Встретилось смешное выражение "to throw the book at smbd". Сейчас, если верить словарям, чаще употребляется просто в значении "серьезно наказать"(в бюрократически-правовом смысле), а изначально ближе было к "наказать максимально". Очень зримый образ юридического талмуда, припечатывающего грешника.
(Ср. с "всех собак повесить".)
