In the century after the Restoration, in a period in which the society and culture of the metropolis were undergoing considerable changes, the elements of an alternative means of dealing with crime in urban society were emerging in policing, in the practices and procedures of prosecution, and in the establishment of new forms of punishment.

About the book: Providing a rounded and coherent history of crime and the law spanning the past 400 years, Histories of Crime explores the evolution of attitudes towards crime and criminality over time. Bringing together contributions from internationally acknowledged experts, the book highlights themes, current issues and key debates in the history of deviance and bad behaviour, including: ■ marital cruelty and adultery ■ infanticide ■ murder ■ the underworld ■ blasphemy and moral crimes ■ fraud and white-collar crime ■ the death penalty and punishment. The paper looks at the implications this crime had on the greater London society, the changes in legislation that came about as a result of forgery, and the changes in punishment for the crime. Ultimately, it examines at the reasons for the radical change in people‟s perception of this crime in such a short time period.
