MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book is an ideal resource for students and scholars of late Victorian/early Edwardian penality . it also sets out an ambitious plan to provide a theoretical framework through which to assess these experiences, one which attempts to make new contributions to debates about the cultural importance of prison and the continuing relevance of a concept of social control." - Dr Sarah Armstrong, Senior Research Fellow, Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research, Glasgow University, UK

"This fascinating collection contains essays by experienced and emerging scholars which explore some neglected topics of crime history. Yet it is those ignored topics which are today producing our most valuable insights into the history of offending and crime control." - Professor Barry Godfrey, Director, Research Institute of Law, Politics and Justice, Keele University, UK.
