Abstract

Book synopsis: This work makes available historical and anthropological research on a region comparatively little known to the English-language academic readership interested in the lively field of crime and violence history. The volume challenges the largely evolutionary current conceptualizations (in terms of both chronology and geography) which shape much of the history of European crime and interpersonal violence.
