Explores the nature of authority and the cultural and social
experiences of all social groups, especially insubordinates, in early
modern England. Examines the ways in which young people responded to
adults, women to men, workers to masters, and the common sort to
their betters. Specific topics include masterless young people in
Norwich, 1560-1645, the keeping of the public peace, and English free
miners and their law, 1550-1800.
