Summary: An Enquiry into the Causes of the Late Increase of Robbers, and Related Writings provides critical unmodernized texts of Henry Fielding's legal and social pamphlets during the period 1749 to 1753, when Fielding served as magistrate for the City and Liberty of Westminster and County of Middlesex. The texts, for the first time, are fully annotated, and a lengthy introduction places them in their biographical and intell...ectual context and provides a detailed account of their publication and reception. Five of the six pamphlets included in this volume clearly serve the interests of the Pelham Administration. There is, however, no evidence to show that Fielding wrote any of the pamphlets at the invitation or command of figures of power within the Administration; instead, he appears simply to have seized those opportunities appropriate to his office to further government interests or, as with An Enquiry into the Causes of the Late Increase of Robbers (1751) and A Proposal for Making an Effectual Provision for the Poor (1753), offered his own solutions to problems which Parliament was currently debating. Though all the pamphlets in this volume are, in one way or another, occasional pieces, they represent an energetic, sincere, and informed response to the obligations of the magistracy, and show Fielding to be an accomplished jurist who, within the limitations of a conservative and traditional world view, sought in a broad sense to see justice done. CONTRIBUTORS: Malvin R. Zirker.
