Abstract

There is an assumption that the society of mainland Britain, and particularly England proper, was essentially non-violent during the nineteenth century and at least up until the end of the Second World War. Part of the assumption focuses on the development of an unarmed, civilian police institution that took responsibility for dealing with public order and obviated the need for summoning the military. There were no nrevolutions, civil wars, and no pronunciamentos in England during this period, though there remains doubt about the extent to which this was the result of accident or good sense on the part of the people and the government. The question of what constitutes a violent society and the extent to which recurrent public and political violence is the result of contingency or design are central here; and they are of continuing fascination for historians and social and political scientists. Thjis essay does not address these questions directly, rather it aims to present a brief chronological narrative of the related and equally important issue of the shifting public order roles of the military and the police in England.
