Nineteenth Century Crime and Punishment
#HCNet members will doubtless be interested to hear of a new, 4-volume collection of primary sources.
Nineteenth-Century Crime and Punishment, by Victor Bailey and published by Routledge, presents a wide range of historic documents. Each volume contains a scholarly introduction and headnotes annotate each document. The collection provide a documentary history of crime and punishment in the ‘long’ nineteenth century (1776-1914), covering crime and criminals, bodily punishments, transportation and the prison. It will likely prove a valuable teaching resource for modules on crime, justice and punishment in nineteenth-century Britain.
