These rebels rose up against injustice- they yearned for great open spaces. From the monopoly of the maritime powers to the advent of industrialism, they defied everything, and in doing so they signed their own death warrants. From train robbers Jesse James and Bruce Reynolds, to Lawrence of Arabia and IRA-activist Bobby Sands, to duos like Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid—their armed exploits are wellknown, but their true cause has often gone unheard. Unable to tolerate arbitrary justice, brazen profiteering, or the oppression of the poor, these exceptional men and women rebelled and became feared outlaws. First seen as nothing but dreaded bandits, today they provoke the rapt fascination of all who secretly harbor a thirst for rebellion.
