Crime, History and Societies is the official journal of the International Association for the History of Crime and Criminal Justice, founded in 1978. Since its first issue in 1997 it has become the main journal in this research domain. Over the last thirty years, historical works on criminal institutions, the police, justice, sentencing and criminality have been profoundly transformed. Writing the history of crime now questions the socially accepted definitions of order and disorder, the legitimacy of structures, ways maintaining order, how to integrate new social groups, and public expectations of justice in society.
