In Peasants, Warriors, and Wives, Keith Moxey examines woodcut images of boisterous peasants, marching mercenaries, and henpecked husbands that have been condemned as a crude and inferior form of art, with values that represent those of the lower orders of society. In this richly illustrated study Moxey claims that, far from being expressions of popular opinion, such prints were the means by which the reformed attitudes of the middle and upper classes could be disseminated to as broad an audience as possible.
