The diverse violence of modern Britain is hardly new. The
Britain of 1850 to 1950 was similarly afflicted. The book is
divided into four parts.
'Getting Hurt' which looks at everyday violence in the home
(including a chapter on infanticide).
'Uses and Rejections' two chapters on the use of violence within
groups of men and women outside the home (for example, violence
within youth gangs, and male violence centred around pubs).
'Going Public' three chapters on how violence was regulated by law
and the professional agencies which were set up to deal with
'Perceptions and Representations' this final section looks at how
violence was written about, using both fiction and non-fiction
Throughout the book the recurring themes of gender, class,
continuity and change, public/private, and experience, discourses
and representations are highlighted.
