Product description

The nine papers in this edited book derive from an international conference on organised crime held at Lampeter, 1996. They illustrate the antiquity of violence and crime and the need to put evidence for criminal activities into their social context. Studies include 'The Mafia of early Greece', (Hans van Wees); Workshops of villains' (Nick Fisher); Condottieri and clansmen (Louis Rawlings); 'The revolt of the Boukoloi' (R Alston); Native Rebellion in the Pisidian Taurus (Stephen Mitchell); Bandits between grandees and the state (Keith Hopwood); Usury as civic injustice in Basil of Caesarea's 2nd homily on Ps 14 ( Susan Holman); 'The violence of the circus factions' (Michael Whitby); 'Crime and Control in Aztec society' (Frances Berdan).
