Review "There is not much with which to quibble in this beautifully researched book. King's references show a mastery of historical writings relevant to his work as well as an understanding of the literature in several related fields such as criminology... his study is undeniably important."
- H-Law, Elisabeth Cawthon, University of Texas at Arlington

"Crime and Law in England is the product of years of painstaking research. While five of its ten chapters have previously been published, their reproduction here is a boon to anyone teaching criminal justice history. More importantly... King has advanced a thought-provoking argument with respect to the way in which we approach the history of English criminal justice as a whole."
- H-Law, Allyson N. May, Department of History, The University of Western Ontario

Book Description How was law made in England in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries? Peter King argues that parliament and the Westminster courts played a less important role in the process of law making than is usually assumed. Justice was often remade from the margins by magistrates and judges.

I was skeptical at first but Midnighty really came through. They answered all my questions and made the whole experience a plesant one.
