This volume contains essays of the history of crime, punishment, and reform in Europe from the 18th century onward. It also contains two long book review essays, and 22 book reviews on major works that have appeared in the subject from the mid-1990s. Knafla's introduction outlines the issues and themes that are contained in the essays and the reviews. As in the other volumes in this series, a comprehensive index identifies all subjects, names, and places in the volume. This is an important resource for scholars, students, and other researchers involved with criminal justice issues and European history.
