MEDIA REVIEWS

'A stimulating (and rare) attempt to link the micro-history of crime to broader intellectual developments in penology and criminal law. This represents a major addition to the field of British social and cultural history, as well as criminal justice history.'

- Neil Davie, Universite Lyon 2, France

'This is a lively and interesting book. It is thoroughly researched and combines the study of local, archival sources with the unpacking of intellectual debate about the role of punishment, shame, and morality in early modern and Victorian society.' - Heather Shore, Leeds Metropolitan University, English Historical Review
