These essay offer challenging material in the fields of crime and protest. Employing the skills of both the historian and the criminologist, these essays range across rural and urban worlds, presenting both highly localized case studies and the broad sweep of a synoptic survey, approaching the genre from both a historical and cultural perspective. The book raises issues of central concern not only to scholars and academics, but to everyone concerned with crime, justice and order within the complexities of modern society. It does honour to a leading figure in the modern renaissance of Welsh history but also outlines,in its own right, issues that illuminate the tension between individual rights and freeedoms on the one hand, and the imperatives of the ordered, policed society on the other.
