'Knepper's book makes a useful addition to studies of late Victorian and Edwardian Britain in particular and is also likely to prove valuable for those interested in the history of criminology. One of the most interesting aspects of this book lies in its demonstration of the continuity of ideas and prejudices from the late Victorian period to the present. Much twenty-first-century discourse about international crime uses concepts which emerged in the decades leading up to the outbreak of the First World War' - History
'This book provides a compelling account of the constructions of popular and scientific conceptions of criminality in a defining moment in the history of industrial modernity. It will not only be of interest to scholars in criminology, but also to historical sociologists and others interested in the early history of the modern global order of nation states.'
- Contemporary Sociology
We live in the age of international crime but when did it begin? This book examines the period when crime became an international issue (1881-1914), exploring issues such as world-shrinking changes in transportation, communication and commerce, and concerns about alien criminality, white slave trading and anarchist outrages.Ver Descripción del producto
