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.

In Search Of The Paper Tiger. The author examines the process of social life and the relationship of myth, popular formula, and the mystery genre to social psychology. The book presents social construction of reality theory as a methodology upon which the structure of mass-mediated popular fiction can be examined, postulating definitions of myth and formula and advancing a new language of literary analysis that acknowledges the socially defining, democratizing experience of popular fiction. Social-psychological analysis is focused on the mystery genre and examines its taxonomy, including the supernatural, fiction noir, gangster, thief, thriller, and detective formulas.
