In eleven interrelated essays, including three previously unpublished works, Hanawalt explores the roles that community, family and society played in maintaining social control in medieval England. Focusing on gender, criminal behaviour, law enforcement, village arbitration, and cultural rituals on inclusion and exclusion, this book reflects current scholarship on medieval legal history, cultural history, and women's cultural studies.
