Sir James Fitzjames Stephen (1829-94) published this three-volume account of the English criminal law's historical development in 1883, four years after his appointment as a judge of the High Court. It is a revision and expansion of the second chapter in Stephen's 1863 General View (also reissued in this series). At first sight, it is ironic that the author of this classic of legal historical scholarship was himself a Benthamite who favoured and promoted the codification of the common law and worked on codes of criminal law and procedure for India and for England. Volume 1 contains a short preliminary account of Roman criminal law and pre-Conquest English criminal law; a survey of courts exercising criminal jurisdiction; a historical account of the development of the main elements of criminal procedure; a history of criminal punishments; and a general comparative view of the differences between English and French criminal procedure
A general view of the criminal law of England by James Fitzjames Stephen( )

63 editions published between 1853 and 2017 in English and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The jurist Sir James Fitzjames Stephen (1829{u2013}94) published this work in 1863 to provide the intelligent layman with a general account of the workings and principles of English criminal law. He begins with a brief sketch of the development of that law from the Anglo-Saxon period onwards. He then covers the current law on criminal responsibility and the classification and definition of specific crimes, before turning to procedure and the rules of evidence. The book helped to establish Stephen's reputation and made possible his appointment as legal member of the Indian viceroy's council in succession to Henry Maine in 1869. Work on its revision for a second edition led Stephen into producing separate and authoritative digests of the law of evidence, criminal law, and criminal procedure, as well as his three-volume History of the Criminal Law of England, published in 1883 and also reissued in this series
