Summary

Covering criminal justice history on a cross-national basis, this book surveys criminal justice in Western civilization and American life chronologically from ancient times to the present. It is designed as an introduction to the historical problems of crime, law enforcement and penology, set against the background of major historical events and movements.

Integrating criminal justice history into the scope of European, British, French and American history, this text provides the opportunity for comparisons of crime and punishment over boundaries of national histories. Its broad chronological sweep gives the reader an appreciation of the factors that have influenced criminal justice and how the field has changed in emphasis through the ages.
