Originally published during the early part of the twentieth century, the Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature were designed to provide concise introductions to a broad range of topics. They were written by experts for the general reader and combined a comprehensive approach to knowledge with an emphasis on accessibility. The Administration of Justice in Criminal Matters (in England and Wales) by G. Glover Alexander was first published in 1911. It presents a concise examination of the criminal justice system and the manner and method of its operation at the beginning of the twentieth century
