Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

"Murder-Mania" was a major preoccupation of the nineteenth century. Major trials were followed avidly, in the courtroom, in newspaper reportage, and at public hangings. True crime literature and ephemera captured the attention of all classes, with murder ballads sold in the streets, and recent crimes quickly dramatized. While the cult of the criminal was popular, the development of the police force, particularly detectives and forensic techniques, also were subjects of wide interest. Concurrently the judicial system was reformed, and there was significant evolution of the penal system.

This unique archive marries fact and fiction, allowing researchers can search and discover essential primary documents such as trial transcripts, case notes from renowned judges, and documents from detective agencies. These primary sources provide essential insight into how the justice system evolved.
