Summary
This work draws on law, literature, philosophy and social history to explore fundamental changes in ideas of selfhood gender and social order in 18th and 19th century England. Lacey argues that these changes underpinned a radical shift in mechanisms of responsibility-attribution, with implications for the criminalisation of women
