Description

Brief Description

The first study of how masculinity and femininity informed criminal behaviour in early modern England.

Learn More about the Book

Garthine Walker reveals that women were not treated leniently by the courts and that beliefs about gender and order impacted on real legal outcomes in early modern England. She demonstrates that the household role had as much to do with the nature of criminality as the individual in this period. Challenging hitherto accepted views regarding gender stereotyping, this book illuminates the complexities of everyday English life in the early modern period.

About the Author

Garthine Walker is Lecturer in History, School of History and Archaeology, Cardiff University.

7. "In her excellent Crime, Gender and Social Order in Early Modern England, Garthine Walker argues that historians have been so little surprised by men's predominance in criminal matters that we have been lulled into accepting a whole set of unwarranted assumptions about men, women, gender roles, crime, and early-modern society in general. This ambitious book challenges these assumptions, and, as does all the best history, offers fresh and compelling answers to questions we thought we had already answered or had not thought to ask. [A] stimulating book [with] characteristic rigour and clarity...Garthine Walker's methods and conclusions, delivered in clear and engaging prose, offer much to admire, discuss, contest, and build on. This is a book that deserves to be widely read."
- Canadian Journal of History, Gordon DesBrisay, University of Saskatchewan
