Moral Panics, the Media and the Law in Early Modern England, Hardback Book

Moral Panics, the Media and the Law in Early Modern England Hardback

Edited by David Lemmings, Claire Walker

Description

An exploration of links between opinion and governance in Early Modern England, studying moral panics about crime, sex and belief.

Hypothesizing that media-driven panics proliferated in the 1700s, with the development of newspapers and government sensibility to opinion, it also considers earlier panics about cross-dressing and witchcraft.
