Reviews

`Professor Smith's excellent new book repays a close reading.'
Michael Lobban, Legal Studies September 1999.
`Professor Smith's excellent analysis of the historical development of modern criminal law.'
Mark Lunney, Legal Hist.Vol.21, No.2, Aug 2000.
`many interesting areas covered in this meticulously researched book.'
Mark Lunney, Legal Hist.Vol.21, No.2, Aug 2000.
`an internal history such as this provides an invaluable insight into the process of change.'
Mark Lunney, Legal Hist.Vol.21, No.2, Aug 2000.
`this book provides a detailed history behind the laboured development of the modern criminal justice system. It is a salutary reminder that the policy rationales of thos responsible for this system were rarely articulated, and, where they were, often failed to stand sustained scrutiny. Our understanding of criminal law is much the richer for Smith's eloquent demonstration of this.'
Mark Lunney, Legal Hist. Vol.21, No.2, Aug.2000.
`the book is thorough and the theme meshes well with many others of the period.'
A. Horstman, Albion College, CHOICE, June 99
