Why was it, for example, that wife-beating could at once be simultaneously legal and so frowned upon that persistent offenders might well end up being ducked in the village pond? When did the serial killer first make an appearance in the annals of English crime? This book deals with these questions.
An ambitiously wide-ranging exploration of 7 centuries of riot, murder and assault, by England's leading expert on the topic. Professor Sharpe draws on an astonishingly wide range of material, from court records to popular ballads to sermons and detective novels.
