This paper presents a few general observations on deviance and repression in a country where the amount of research done so far does not permit a real synthesis. Its conclusions, therefore, must be regarded as tentative. The data have been derived from the author's archival studies and from work done by a few other scholars. General issus raised in the literature on the history of crime and repression in various European countries provide the context for the Dutch evidence. I am starting with a brief discussion of criminality, but my major concern will be with criminal justice and modes of repression, especially with imprisonment. In the last section I will make a few remarks on the contribution of historical study to the understanding of contemporary problems in the field, with special reference to the drug problem.
