From the Publisher"Highly recommended."
"… offers a rich analysis subdivided into topics that include rape, elopement, forced abduction, adultery, and false accusations … Dunn displays an admirable ability in scrupulous analysis of court records and legislation, attending to the interests of lawmakers as well as all potentially interested parties … Above all, one finishes this book wanting to hear a great deal more from Caroline Dunn."
Sara McDougall, The Medieval Review
"The strength of Dunn’s study lies in her cogent analysis of sources and how she connects this evidence to changes in the legal statutes and culture in England … [it] offers new insights on the crimes of rape and abduction as well as the clever ways in which the laity maneuvered in and out of marital unions."
