What follows outlines a few key themes which require particular scholarly attention, rather than providing a comprehensive assessment of research priorities in this area. While the social profile of prosecutors is fairly well-established, 80 their exact role in the legal process remains unclear. Taken together, such alternative approaches to the study of law-enforcement would lead to a more sophisticated understanding of how particular criminals were brought to court, and therefore the extent to which the priorities of nineteenth-century criminal justice were determined by the public rather than the police.
Employers also took advantage of such private settlements, dealing with individual employees on a case-by-case basis. In particular, scholars have neglected to investigate autonomous civilian efforts to prevent crime. A history of crime and policing with the police left out would obviously present a grossly skewed account of the nineteenth-century experience.
Instead, we must work towards a holistic portrayal of policing and crime control in this period, which combines research on the new police with work on autonomous, popular responses to crime. Research on the contribution of the press, private companies and ordinary people to criminal justice and crime control will demonstrate that dealing with crime was not simply the job of the new police. It will also be important to evaluate whether these disparate tactics of crime control were integrated into a coherent overall strategy and, if so, by what means , or if in fact the response to crime was more a site of conflict between the various interested parties.

This kind of approach will allow historians to compare the governance of crime with responses to the other great social problems of this period, and therefore to reassess the apparent exceptionalism of the criminal justice state in Victorian England. Recent attempts to backdate the process of state monopolisation to the eighteenth century have helped to undercut existing grand narratives, yet they are plainly inadequate as attempts to explicate the evolving relationship between crime control and the modern state. An alternative approach is therefore needed, which can capture the novelty of criminal justice arrangements in each period, rather than struggling to pinpoint a single, discrete moment of transition from communal to state governance of crime.
However, only once we have re-evaluated the complex nature of crime control and resolution in the age of the new police can we reconceptualise the evolving relationship between crime and the state over a longer period. As an infant discipline, modern crime history largely though never entirely mutated from the study of people and their conflicts into the study of the criminal justice system. While the rich realm of social experience remains visible at the margins, the structure of state institutions and the behaviour of particular administrators tend to take pride of place.
Many practitioners who foregrounded such issues did so because they wanted to reassess the history of the English state, 96 and they have certainly made a valuable contribution to this enterprise. Such work will underscore that crime — and the response to it — were core constituents of everyday life in the past, and contribute substantially to the study of that mass of human experience lost to passage of time.

Eds , Comparative histories of crime , Cullompton, Willan Publishing, , pp. Lemmings, D. Lenman, B. Linebaugh, P. Locker, J. This innovative book offers a comprehensive assessment of policing in late modern Britain. The overall theme is that as we approach the end of the twentieth century, it is an appropriate time to review recent developments in policing and law enforcement and to consider future prospects.
The areas covered include equal opportunities and public policework; perspectives on and politics of police policy making; the emergence and consequences of managerialism and privatisation; legitimacy, policing and human rights; crime control and surveillance in Northern Ireland; crime rates, victimisation and the provision of service; risk, late modernity and 'community policing'; regulating virtual communities and policing cybercrime; and the insights to be gained from comparative analysis.
