Browne, Ray B., Kreiser, Lawrence A., Jr.
Readers of detective stories are turning more toward historical crime fiction to learn both what everyday life was like in past societies and how society coped with those who broke the laws and restrictions of the times. The crime fiction treated here ranges from ancient Egypt through classical Greece and Rome; from medieval and renaissance China and Europe through nineteenth-century England and America.Browne, Ray B. is the author of 'Detective As Historian History and Art in Historical Crime Fiction' with ISBN 9780879728151 and ISBN 0879728159.
