              The histories of prisons, transportation, and police are well-established fields of enquiry. In recent years scholars have begun to recognise the subjects' global dimensions and the potential for comparative studies to provide new critical insights. This book offers original and ...critical essays from leading scholars working on crime, police, and prisons across the continents of Asia, the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Australia. Drawing on a range of disciplinary tools and critical analyses, and utilising a comparative transnational lens, Transnational Penal Cultures explores interdisciplinary connections between, and challenges to traditional western democratic historiographies, as well as categorisations of offenders, police and ex-offenders. --

              How did the institutions of the criminal justice system deal with the challenges and practical problems in its processes, both new and rediscovered, during the inter-war years? This book explores a relatively neglected but significant area of modern crime and criminal justice his...tory: one beset by a range of issues such as police corruption, new scientific techniques, racecourse gangs, and public order disturbance such as street gambling and youth crime. This book examines various aspects of the inter-war criminal justice system, including how the courts overcome practical, evidential and procedural problems; tensions between the police and the Director for Public Prosecution, how the police responded to scandal and controversy and the challenges presented by gang and public order offences. This book will be of interest to all those interested in the development of the criminal justice system, as well as the history of courts and policing.

              Capital Punishment in Twentieth-Century Britain: Audience, Justice, Memory (Hardback)

              Drawing on primary research, this book explores the cultural life of the death penalty in Britain in the twentieth century. Building on scholarship on capital punishment in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, it examines the cultural transformations of capital punishment in ...the twentieth century. Lizzie Seal focuses specifically on issues of audience and the transformation of the audience from one which was physically present at executions, to one which experienced them via newspaper reports and other cultural forms such as waxwork exhibitions. Other issues covered include popular protests for abolition, petitioning for the condemned through letter writing and public fascination with the figure of the hangman. Furthermore, the author considers how collective memory has transformed the death penalty into a cultural trauma.

              Crime, Violence and Visibility: Gendering Understandings of Violence, Disorder and Protest in England and Wales 1784-2010 (Hardback)

              Though there has been much work on the change in attitudes towards violence since the late eighteenth century, little attention has been paid to the gendered profile of its development or the consequent differential cultural understandings of criminality manifested by men and wom...en, as well as the wider contextualization of violence within society. This book examines the gendering of violence from the late eighteenth century onwards and reflects on the extent to which gender expectations have continued, into the twentieth century at least, to shape the attitudes of legislators, legal personnel, and the criminal justice process towards types of violence and types of perpetrators of that violence.
