A Culture of Policing is one of the first book-length projects to explore crime and policing in early-to-mid twentieth century Britain. This anthropology of street crime takes the reader through the high and low life of Westminster, to the grimy environs of Paddington and Waterloo, with significant stops in poorer Poplar, Stepney and Shoreditch. It examines the roles of pimps and prostitutes, beggars and street bookmakers, costermongers, drunks and corrupt policemen.
This book will be of interest to researchers and students in the fields of criminology and the history of crime, as well as the general reader.
