Synopsis: This book presents a social and cultural history of "dishonorable people" (unehrliche Leute), an outcast group in early modern Germany. Executioners, skinners, grave-diggers, shepherds, barber-surgeons, millers, linen-weavers, sow-gelders, latrine-cleaners, and bailiffs were among the "dishonorable" by virtue of their trades. It shows the extent to which dishonor determined the life chances and self-identity of these people. Taking Augsburg as a prime example, it investigates how honorable estates interacted with dishonorable people, and shows how the pollution anxieties of early modern Germans structured social and political relations within honorable society.

Review: "This is a splendid book, carefully honed over several years, beautifully written, and a delight to read." David Warren Sabean, Journal of Social History

"...Kathy Stuart has written an important and original book that deserves to be read by a wide circle of scholars." R. Po-chia Hsia, Central European History

"Stuart's identification of the early modern period as determinative for the boundaries of honor seems unexceptional...This book has its virtues: deep archival research, broad theoretical reading." Sixteenth Century Journal

"Rarely has an anthropologically informed study been joined with such careful attention to local judicial records. This is an excellent book." American Historical Review

"The challenge of relating local conclusions to national questions is inherent to any well-researched regional study, even one as carefully crafted as this." Journal of Modern History

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book presents a social and cultural history of dishonourable people (unehrliche Leute), an outcast group in early modern Germany. Executioners, skinners, grave-diggers, shepherds, barber-surgeons, millers, linen-weavers, sow-gelders, latrine-cleaners, and bailiffs were among the dishonourable by virtue of their trades. This dishonour was either hereditary, often through several generations, or it arose from ritual pollution whereby honourable citizens could become dishonourable by coming into casual contact with members of the outcast group. The dishonourable milieu of the city of Augsburg from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries is reconstructed to show the extent to which dishonour determined the life-chances and self-identity of dishonourable people. The book then investigates how honourable estates interacted with dishonourable people, and how the pollution anxieties of early modern Germans structured social and political relations within honourable society.
