Data no doubt supplied in the service of the criminal and penological reforms of the period, a report from the former Union officer-turned-diplomat Andrews on the criminal systems of Norway and Sweden; Andrews commends such features as detailed annual statistics, the use of public defenders, and the infrequency of "lynch law" in Scandinavia.
