The Criminal was written by Havelock Ellis in 1895, and provides "a critical summary of the new (in 1895) science of criminal anthropology". It is a useful insight into the way society viewed criminals. 

The Preface begins ... "This little book is an attempt to present to the English reader a critical summary of the results of the science now commonly called criminal anthropology. In other words, it deals briefly with the problems connected with the criminal as he in is himself and as he becomes in contact with society; it also tries to indicate some of the practical social bearings of such studies."
