Crime, Punishment, and Popular Culture, 1790-1920
Gathers the raw data about crime, its solutions, and the popular response into one archive. The archive's focus is on the most rapid period of evolution for crime and its associated legal/penal systems: the long nineteenth century, a period of major social upheaval and technological development, from wars to the Industrial Revolution. Almost all aspects of society underwent transformation during this time, and the law adapted to these changes. The collection covers Europe, North America, India, and the Antipodes and includes material in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.
