Summary
"This volume covers the formative years of American detective fiction. It examines elements including the rise and decline of police as an institution; the parallel development of private detectives; and the birth of the crusading newspaper reporter. The work also looks at the beginnings of forensic science and criminology--and consequently, the detective story"--Provided by publisher
