(p.287) Conclusion
The Liverpool Underworld
Liverpool University Press

This chapter sums up the key findings of this study into the history of crime in Liverpool during the period from 1750 to 1900. It suggests that present–day problems concerning knife crime, youth gangs, binge drinking, vice, and anti–social behaviour all have their origins in the nineteenth century. It also contends that while the urban redevelopment has brought many changes, Liverpool is still characterized by poverty and unemployment amid great wealth and commercial opportunity.

Keywords:   Liverpool, crime, knife crime, youth gangs, binge drinking, vice, anti–social behaviour, poverty, unemployment, commercial opportunity
