This book surveys the changing patterns of inter-personal violence in England since the mid-eighteenth century. Starting from the current popular assumption that Englsih society has become more violent since the end of the twentieth century it explores a range of sites - public and domestic - where violence has occurred. It argues that the understanding of violence in England over this period was intimately connected with the understnading of Englishness.
