Crime and Culture

I'm not a big "true crime" reader, but Jonathan Edelstein has organized a blogstorm of Old Bailey scholarship which brings out some great historical discussions. So if you have an interest in early modern English history, or the use of criminal records for social history, the way in which digitization of sources can facilitate research, or just want to read about the dregs of society from another time and place, it's great stuff.
