Gun Culture in Early Modern England

Lois Schwoerer, M.A. ’52, Ph.D. ’56

Gun Culture in Early Modern England, by Lois Schwoerer, M.A. ’52, Ph.D. ’56​, brings to life the period from 1500 to 1740. During that period the availability of guns in England inspired a fascination that led to a right-to-have-arms declaration, long before the Second Amendment. (The University of Virginia Press, 2016)
