520    Charles Dickens's "Oliver Twist," with Fagin, Sykes, the 
       Artful Dodger, and children trained as pickpockets and 
       sent out as burglar's accomplices, provides an 
       unforgettable fictional image of the Victorian underworld.
       "Fagin's Children" is an account of the reality of child 
       crime in 19th century Britain and the reaction of the 
       authorities to it. It reveals both the poverty and misery 
       of many children's lives in the growing industrial cities 
       of Britain and of changing attitudes toward the problem. 
       Inevitably most is known about children who were arrested.
       While few children were hanged after 1800, their treatment
       ranged from whipping to imprisonment, sometimes in the 
       hulks, and transportation. Increasingly, elements of 
       training and reclamation came into a system principally 
       aimed at punishment. Fagin's Children is an original and 
       important contrihution both to the history of Victorian 
       crime and to the history of childhood.
