Summary
Twenty-three international academics contribute to this collection of seven original essays on the history of crime, punishment, and reform in Europe in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, two long book review essays, and 15 shorter, individual book reviews on major works published since the mid-1990s. Issues discussed include capital punishment, institutional and public concepts of criminal justice, the arbitration of popular disputes, government reaction to perceived threats of violence and terror, the influence of war on crime and punishment, reformatory penal institutions, and community policing, prisons, and rehabilitation.
