About this series

Since the 1960s, studies of police, punishment and the courts have been an integral and popular part of historical scholarship, and have followed in the historical trajectory of a more expansive criminal justice apparatus around the world. This international book series aims to examine and debate some of the most pressing issues and problems in the field, and to stimulate new directions in research. It will showcase the work of both emerging and leading scholars of the social, cultural and institutional histories of police, punishment and the judicial sphere, and welcomes work grounded in various disciplines including criminology, sociology, history, law, legal history and political science.
