Product Description


‘Folklorist Seal examines the durability of the outlaw as hero in the imaginations of the disenfranchised. [...] Particularly valuable is the book’s final half, where Seal crafts a structural analysis outlining the cycle by which social and cultural circumstances transform the bandit into outlaw hero. Recommended.’ —M. L. Murray, Kean University, ‘Choice’

‘Generous and powerful…a fine and world-ranging survey, and a study presented with a compassionate identification and with a pleasing wit. It is, quite simply, Australia’s finest national and comparative volume in the global scholarship of the folkloric discipline… A rich, reflective and highly researched compilation, one which will certainly stand as a bold reference work… it will stand on the shelf alongside the other world classics’ —J. S. Ryan ‘Australian Folklore’


‘A wide-ranging account of the compelling power of the outlaw along the borders of history and mythology.’ —Professor Stephen Knight, University of Cardiff
