Land of White Gloves?provides a comprehensive overview of the history of crime and punishment in Wales. The history of crime in Wales is intimately connected to questions of the nature and identity of 'the State'. Including original materials, the book is structured around the themes of the historical changes to and limitations upon the power of the state: operational (what are the requirements of state for the operation of a criminal justice system); jurisdictional (the theoretical extension of English Law into Wales); 'horizontal' (the de facto scope of the extension of that law in practice); and 'vertical' (how far did it penetrate through different sections of society?). This book will appeal to students and scholars of criminal justice history.
