Editorial Reviews


"Intricacy and depth of scholarship... characterize the chapters. Modern Histories of Crime and Punishment has been a bracing intellectual excursion, and... I found each of the articles to range from interesting to fascinating."—Law and Politics Book Review

"This collection of highly original works explores the construction of criminal law discourse and its problematic relationship to the enterprise of state punishment. There are many scholars whose work intersects with this volume, but no other published collection on the history of substantive criminal law offers anything like the range and coherence put forth here."—Jonathan Simon, Boalt Hall School of Law, UC Berkeley

"Modern Histories of Crime and Punishment involves an original and interdisciplinary approach to the area of criminal law. This is an exceptional book." —Alan Norrie, King's College, London
