Crime in Nineteenth-Century Wales


Crime in Nineteenth-Century Wales by David J. V. Jones


Crime in 19th Century Wales is one of those rare academic texts which manages to be as interesting and entertaining as it is authoritative and informative . . . Lucidly written, impeccably researched and well presented, the book is to be warmly recommended to anyone seeking to understand and influence the criminal justice system of our own times. -Probation Journal
