About this title

Synopsis:

Why is the highwayman largely perceived as a romantic, glamorous and gallant figure? How is it that men who were really nothing more than bandits, often gratuitously violent, and sometimes murderers and rapists, have become the swashbuckling heroes of history? Informative, stimulating, and entertaining, this book will appeal to anyone interested in the dramatic, murky underworld of history.

About the Author:

David Brandon is an experienced freelance lecturer in social history, topography and related subjects for over ten UK universities, many adult education colleges and other providers of continuing learning. He lives in Peterborough.
