This challenging study explores the nature and meaning of violence in fifteenth-century England. Maddern examines violence on each side of the law, offering a subtle and intelligent analysis of its role in a society with a strong concern for order. She investigates the way their moral code was reflected in the procedures and punishments of the courts, and assesses the success of the legal system in maintaining authority and order. Based on extensive archival research, her scholarly and original study makes an important contribution to our understanding of the medieval world view.

About the Author:

Philippa C. Maddern, Lecturer in History, University of Western Australia.

Review:


"A solid monograph...An intelligent and interesting work."--Albion


"A clear, bold, and thoughtful work, based on a wide ad meticulous search of intractable sources."--American Historical Review


"An important book that urges a re-reading of familiar assessments of authority and rank, and makes the distinction between allegations and a reconstruction of 'what really happened.'"--CHOICE


"Fascinating study...This is a well-researched and carefully argued book which will undoubtedly change the way we think of fifteenth-century England"--The Historian


"An important, original and compelling book. It brings new insights to a subject with which most historians of late-medieval society probably thought they were familiar."--Times Literary Supplement
