Abstract

... This chapter will explore aspects of the self-image of the late Victorian and Edwardian policeman. ... Primarliy, we are concerned with the relationship between self-discipline, self-help, and self-respect, as measured against those who had fallen by the wayside: the unrespectable and, in Booth's late Victorian terminology, "the vicious and semicrimanal poor".
