Abstract

The book addresses the key changes in the understanding of crime and criminals in Europe, and the responses to these in the form of policing and penal policy from the Enlightenment to the Second World War. It discusses the relevance of the broad theoretical perspectives commonly deployed to explore these issues. Throughout it emphasises the way in which different states sought to learn from the practice of others, reshaping policies and practice to suit their own context.
