Medieval Crime and Social Control

Edited by Barbara A. Hanawalt (NHC Fellow, 1997–98) and David Wallace

Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1999

From the publisher’s description:

Crime is a matter of interpretation, especially in the Middle Ages, when societies faced with new ideas and pressures were continually forced to rethink what a crime was-and what was a crime. These essays reveal how various forces in medieval society interacted and competed in interpreting and influencing mechanisms for social control.
