"Crime and Society in England, 1750-1900" draws on recent research to assess the changes in the understanding of crime, policing, the courts and penal sanctions in England as the country industrialised and urbanised during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The third edition brings the subject up-to-date by reflecting recent shifts away from class towards gender analysis, and the growing interest in violence as opposed to property crime. This text is suitable for undergraduate courses in modern English history and criminology courses in law departments.
Clive Emsley is Professor of History at the Open University.
