4. Emsley, Clive. <i>[https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/140585863X/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=140585863X&linkCode=as2&tag=dailyh0c-20&linkId=acf52d70e02c520f03ba439774e10ca3" Crime and Society in England, 1750-1900]</i> (Pearson Longman, 2013) Most students of criminal history will be familiar with some of Emsley's work. This book was originally published in 1986 and was a detailed analysis of how society responded to crime, criminal behaviors, and developed a police force. A revised fourth-edition ''Crime and Society'' has recently been published. This newest edition builds on Emsley's discussion of a criminal class in English history by including women. Specifically, it examines how contemporary expectations of gender influenced criminal proceedings.
5. Gray, Drew D. <i>[https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1441117652/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1441117652&linkCode=as2&tag=dailyh0c-20&linkId=0a5ea08cf255b37fe758900a1d59e239 Crime, Policing and Punishment in England, 1660-1914]</i> (Bloomsbury Acadmic, 2016) Regardless of if you're new to the field of criminal and legal history or you're familiar with the subject, you'll find something useful and engaging in Gray's book. The book is divided into two parts. The first deals with specific themes (like juvenile crime and gender and crime) while the second part deals with the development of the justice system. Helpfully, Gray offers considerations for future research in the field.
