A sequel to Emsley's Crime and Society in England, 1750-1900, this 20th century volume covers the history of crime in 20th century England. It is a much needed general survey text on the history of crime and policing during the period for the growing number of courses in this area.
Clive Emsley is Emeritus Professor of History at the Open University. Author of Crime and Society in England 1750-1900, now in its fourth edition, his recent publications also include Hard Men: Violence in England since 1750 (2005), Crime, Police and Penal Policy: European Experiences 1750-1940 (2007), and The Great British Bobby (2009).
"There is much to savour here. Crime and Society in Twentieth-Century England provides a very good introduction to the historiography...Emsley points out some of its deficiencies, which should inspire undergraduate dissertations on property crime amongst other things. Like its sister volume, this should become a standard text for courses on crime in modern England and is the ideal accompaniment to Police and Policing in the Twentieth Century." - Mark Roodhouse, University of York
