From Alexanderplatz, the bustling Berlin square ringed by bleak slums, to Moabit, site of the city's most feared prison, this book illuminates the culture of criminal justice in late imperial Germany. Hett explores the lawyers, judges, jurors, thieves, pimps, and murderers who inhabited this world and examines how the law reflected the broader urban culture and politics of a rapidly changing city.
