Description - 100 British Crime Writers by Esme Miskimmin

100 British Crime Writers explores a history of British crime writing between 1855 and 2015 through 100 writers, detailing their lives and significant writing and exploring their contributions to the genre. Divided into four sections: 'The Victorians, Edwardians, and World War One, 1855-1918'; 'The Golden Age and World War Two, 1919-1945'; 'Post-War and Cold War, 1946-1989'; and 'To the Millennium and Beyond, 1990-2015', each section offers an introduction to the significant features of these eras in crime fiction and discusses trends in publication, readership, and critical response. With entries spanning the earliest authors of crime fiction to a selection of innovative contemporary novelists, this book considers the development and progression of the genre in the light of historical and social events.
