Rogues of the Road: Highwaymen & Highway Robbery in 18th Century England

Highwaymen & Highway Robbery in 18th Century EnglandA complete and concise look at the malefactors, rogues and highwaymen who pursued their evil and wanton calling by assaulting and depriving the fair citizens of England of their most precious and prized possessions by use of the most reprehensible of methods… Highway Robbery!

This book is mainly concerned with the Seventh Commandment, and its application to the protection of property in eighteenth century England during a period when highway robbery was, for many, the preferred way to steal. The work examines the extent of highway robbery in eighteenth century England and the various ways in which highwaymen operated.

An essential basic account of the English eighteenth century legal system with regard to the courts and policing is provided in order to establish a point of reference as well as to illustrate the importance and significance of the receiver of stolen property upon whom the success of most thieves, even today, remains dependent.
