about this item

This study is for students and scholars in the history of crime and legal history. Covering the period from 1700 to the Jim Crow era, the book presents a collection of micro-studies on crime, the law, and deviant behavior; coverage encompasses not only violent crime, but also nonviolent crime such as financial crime and blasphemy. The micro-study approach has been chosen for its ability to illuminate the importance of human motivations and choices. Cases are grouped in thematic sections on criminality, state, and society; violence and the violent; police and policing; and stories of confinement. There is special emphasis on female criminals, such as Julia Hyland, Kate Webster, and Caroline Wybrow. Other topics include policing vice in early Victorian London and chain gangs in the American South. B&w historical illustrations are included. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
