Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

First published in 1969, this little book provoked a whole new field of historical study: bandit history. This substantially revised and expanded new edition brings the book up to the present day, when the disintegration of state power has brought back banditry to many parts of the world.
From the Balkan haiduks, to the Indian dacoits to the Peruvian congaceiros banditry has been mythologised in legend and song across the globe. In Bandits Eric Hobsbawm tells the dramatic story of these men, their violent and action-packed lives, and bloody deaths. But who were these bandits? Were they really champions of social justice as was claimed? What qualities did they possess to make them unique? What was their place within the economic and political framework? And why did characters such as Robin Hood and Jesse James become known throughout the world? These questions and many others are answered in this fascinating, fast-paced history of myth and reality.

Inhaltsangabe:

BANDITS is a study of the social bandit or bandit-rebel - robbers and outlaws who are not regarded by public opinion as simple criminals, but rather as champions of social justice, as avengers or as primitive resistance fighters. Whether Balkan haiduks, Indian dacoits or Brazilian congaceiros, their spectacular exploits have been celebrated and preserved in story and myth. Some are only know to their fellow countrymen; others like Rob Roy, Robin Hood and Jesse James are famous throughout the world. First published in 1969, Bandits inspired a new field of historical study: bandit history. This substantially extended and revised new edition appears at a time when the disintegration of state power has reintroduced fertile conditions for banditry once again to flourish in many parts of the world.

Anbieterinformationen

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
