about

A fresh and fascinating history of crime and violence in England through the office of the coroner

In his fascinating debut, Matthew Lockwood explores the history of crime, homicide, and suicide in England over four centuries through the office of the coroner. While the office was established to investigate violent or suspicious deaths, Lockwood asserts that the demands of competing parties gradually shaped its systems and transformed England into a modern state earlier than is commonly acknowledged. Weaving together strands of social, legal, economic, and political history, this book will interest scholars across a range of fields.
Matthew Lockwood is assistant professor of history at the University of Warwick. His dissertation won the Hans Gaztke Prize for outstanding dissertation in European History.
