Synopsis

Ranging from the middle of the eighteenth through to the end of the nineteenth century, Crime and Society in England, 1750-1900 explores the developments in policing, the courts and the penal system as England became increasingly industrialised and urbanised. Through a consideration of the difficulty of defining crime, the book presents criminal behaviour as being intrinsically tied to historical context and uses this theory as the basis for its examination of crime within English society during this period.











In this fifth edition Professor Emsley explores the most recent research, including the increased focus on ethnicity, gender and cultural representations of crime, allowing students to gain a broader view of modern English society. Divided thematically, the book's coverage includes:























the varying perceptions of crime across different social groups















crime in the workplace















the concepts of a `criminal class' and `professional criminals'















the developments in the courts, the police and the prosecution of criminals.





Thoroughly updated to address key questions surrounding crime and society in this period, and fully equipped with illustrations, tables and charts to further highlight important aspects, Crime and Society in England, 1750-1900 is the ideal introduction for students of modern crime.
