The Edwardian Detective 1901 1915. The Edwardian Detective examines the range of detective literature produced between 1901 and 1915 in Britain, during the reign of Edward VII and the early reign of George V. It assesses Edwardian detective literature as cultural history, with a focus on such issues as legal reform, marital reform, surveillance, international diplomacy, the arms race, Germanophobia, masculinity/femininity, the 'best-seller', and the concept of 'popular' literature. It also addresses specific issues related to the relationship of law to literature.
