    Focusing on the changing patterns of violent behaviour, public and private, Clive Emsley's study explores 'the popularly held assumption that English society became increasingly less violent during the 19th century and that it remained essentially non-violent up to the middle of the 20th century at least'. He examines how the English have perceived themselves and how they have explained the violence within English society that seems to contradict their cherished stereotype of reserve and restraint.
