Keywords: History of Crime | violent crime | Civilizing process theory

The historiography of violent crime has had a great development in last decades, as much in American continent as in Europe. Exceptions like United States, Latin America and some European regions, have created doubts about generalizations than assume the accuracy of the theory of civilizing process inherited from Norbert Elias sociology, which could explain the decreasing trend of criminal violence since the Middle Ages. In this essay some ideas has presented about this debate, as well as a short balance of Latin American studies about the topic, that in some way has been outside of long term perspectives. Finally, its doing a call to fill the lacuna in quantitative studies and make a review of criminality from a long term perspective that could connect today increasing of violent crime with an historical trend and even propose resolution options to this trouble.
