Description

Recent research emphasises that feud and vendetta are not merely to be seen as expressions of chaos, anarchy and lawlessness but can be perceived as key to the understanding of these societies. Feud and vendetta were integrated parts of society and played a fundamental role in shaping pre-modern societies at all levels.
