Review of Stephen Basdeo’s “The Lives and Exploits of the Most Noted Highwaymen, Rogues, and Murderers” (2018)

I admit that I have never heard of some of the criminals, which made the reading really enjoyable though some crimes were appalling. The most valuable part for me were all the references to the law and social background of the period together with detailed explanation why at a certain point there were no more highwaymen. A very good read! – BEATA B. Netgalley

Review of Stephen Basdeo’s “The Life and Legend of a Rebel Leader: Wat Tyler” (2018)

“Basdeo wrote his doctoral thesis on the legend of Robin Hood and resolved to write a similar piece on the legend of Wat Tyler … he provides an interesting chapter on historical novels featuring Wat.” – Edward James, The Historical Novel Society

Review of Stephen Basdeo’s “The Life and Legend of a Rebel Leader: Wat Tyler” (2018)

“…the book is devoted to the study of how the legend of Wat Tyler has been received through the ages, and in fact this enquiry proves to be both entertaining and enlightening … the author has contrived to pursue a single theme throughout in both a scholarly and entertaining fashion.” Robin Carlile.
