About this product
- Description<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC -//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN > Interwar Halifax was a city in flux, a place where citizens debated adopting new ideas and techlogies but agreed on one thing: modernity was corrupting public morality and unleashing untold social problems on their fair city. To create a bulwark against further social dislocation, citizens, policy makers, and officials modernized the city's machinery of order - courts, prisons, and the police force - and placed greater emphasis on crime control. These tough-on-crime measures, Boudreau argues, did t resolve problems but rather singled out ethnic mirities, working-class men, and female and juvenile offenders as problem figures in the eternal quest for order.
