Eric Hobsbawm. This is a study of the social bandit or bandit rebel -- robbers & 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. From Balkan haiduks to Brazilian cangaceiros, Robin Hood to Jesse James, their spectacular exploits have been celebrated & preserved in story & myth. Eric Hobsbawm sets the historical figures against the ballads, legends & films they have inspired. This substantially extended & revised new edition appears at a time when the disintegration of state power is reintroducing fertile conditions for banditry once again to flourish in many parts of the world. B&W photos.
