Abstract

This is a bibliographical essay discussing the developments in the history of criminal justice history since the early 1990s. It describes how the shift from the 'social' history of the 1960s and 1970s, in which the current interest in the history of crime was developed, to 'cultural' and gender perspectives has influenced research. It notes current areas of interest and points to significant lacunae.
