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.


This new book is a terrific read. It leads its readers into the lost world of Berlin's courts in the last two and a half decades before World War One. Hett has done a remarkable job bringing to life the social and cultural history of criminal law, courtroom culture, and its popular reception in Wilhelmine Berlin. Throughout, he weaves accounts of specific trials into an analysis of the transformation of the criminal justice system.--Julia Bruggemann "H-Net "
