Moral Panics, the Media and the Law in Early Modern England Hardback
Edited by David Lemmings, Claire Walker
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.
