Product description


Highlighting a diverse cast of characters criminals, cops, clergy among others this collection of essays about individuals and their relation to the criminal justice system in Britain, Europe and the United States provides a bottom up view of crime, police, and prisons. These microhistory case studies add an important dimension to generalized theories or statistics that describe structure and aggregate patterns of crime and criminal justice rather than unique experiences. In addition to specialists, students will find themselves engaged with the personal narratives that bring the past to life. --Wilbur R. Miller, Stony Brook University, USA

One of the most impressive aspects of the collection is the clarity with which each author explains their own approach to microhistory and its value and contribution to broader historical debates. The methodological explanations and cohesive approach offered throughout is especially valuable, as the reader understands why this approach matters and what it adds to the topic analysed and to wider issues relating to the history of crime. --History Today
