With some notable exceptions, the subject of outlawry in medieval and early-modern English history has attracted relatively little scholarly attention. This volume helps to address this significant gap in scholarship, and encourage further study of the subject, by presenting a series of new studies, based on original research, that address significant features of outlawry and criminality over an extensive period of time. The volume casts important light on, and raises provocative questions about, the definition, ambiguity, variety, causes, function, adaptability, impact and representation of outlawry during this period. It also helps to illuminate social and governmental attitudes and responses to outlawry and criminality, which involved the interests of both church and state. From different perspectives, the contributions to the volume address the complex relationships between outlaws, the societies in which they lived, the law and secular and ecclesiastical authorities, and, in doing so, reveal much about the strengths and limitations of the developing state in England. In terms of its breadth and the compelling interest of its subject matter, the volume will appeal to a wide audience of social, legal, political and cultural historians.

Drawing on a wide body of evidence, the book argues that the support of women was vital to the persistence of piracy around the British Isles at least until the early seventeenth century. The emergence of long-distance and globalized predation had far reaching consequences for female agency.

Long before Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, and Black Bart terrorized the Caribbean, the seas around the British Isles swarmed with pirates. Thousands of men turned to piracy at sea, often as a makeshift strategy of survival. Although the young Francis Drake became the most famous pirate of the period, scores of little-known pirate leaders operated during this time, acquiring mixed reputations on land and at sea. Captain Henry Strangeways earned notoriety for his attacks on French shipping in the English Channel and the Irish Sea, selling booty ashore in southwest England and Wales. John Callice and his associates sailed in consort with others, including another arch-pirate Robert Hicks, plundering French, Spanish, Danish, and Scottish shipping, in voyages that ranged from Scotland to Spain. The first British pirates led erratic careers, but their roving in local waters paved the way for the more aggressive and ambitious deep-sea piracy in the Caribbean.

De la fin du Moyen Âge au tournant du XIXe siècle, le gibet trône en plein coeur de Paris comme de Londres; la souffrance, le supplice, le spectaculaire de l'exécution sont parmi les pièces maîtresses du système pénal. Cette omniprésence de la peine de mort est-elle le signe d'une société violente ? D'un processus de civilisation encore inachevé ? Loin des idées reçues, ce livre révèle la place centrale et jamais démentie de l'exécution capitale dans l'histoire culturelle de l'Europe. À l'appui d'archives, de récits contemporains, de documents iconographiques, Pascal Bastien dresse une véritable cartographie de la mort à Londres et à Paris et redonne la voix aux suppliciés, tout en restituant le quotidien des bourreaux. On entend s'élever les clameurs de la foule et on comprend, enfin, que la peine capitale a pu sous différentes formes constituer et préserver le lien social.
