9780807814178: Prison and Plantation: Crime, Justice, and Authority in Massachusetts and South Carolina, 1767-1878 (Studies in Legal History)

This broad, comparative study examines the social, economic, and legal contexts of crime and authority in two vastly different states over a one hundred year period. Massachusetts--an urban, industrial, and heterogeneous northern state--chose the penitentiary in its attempt to minimize the role of informal and extralegal authority while South Carolina--a rural southern slave state--systematically reduced its formal legal institutions, frequently relying on vigilantism.
