Review from previous edition The book is conceptually sophisticated...It is also consistently interesting. In sum, the book is a welcome addition to the literature (Thomas Gallanis, Continuity and Change)
Excellent and deserve[s] a wide readership...testament to Emsley's attention to detail, breadth of knowledge, and ability to make history accessible and interesting. (Drew Gray, Family and Community History)
as always, Professor Emsley's work is rich with information and invites reflection ... His book will long remain an invaluable tool for both historians and sociologists. (Philippe Robert, Crime, Histoire, et Sociétés)

I found it readable and most informative. Having attended Lectures by Clive Emsley at York University many years ago, his writing is as thorough and precise as his lectures. Obviously the price, coupled with the fact that there are less than three hundred pages, could act as an deterrent to purchasing the book and as a slight criticism I did feel that as a hardback book, it should at least have a dust cover.
Although an academic book it should not be restricted to academics but to anyone interested in the changes brought about throughout Europe leading to the policies (right or wrong) which are implemented by today's governments and for today's societies.
