Peasants, religious heretics, witches, pirates, runaway slaves, prostitutes and pornographers, frequenters of taverns and fraternal society lodge rooms, revolutionaries, blues and jazz musicians, beats, and contemporary youth gangs -- those who defied authority, choosing to live dangerously outside the defining cultural dominations of early insurgent and, later, domanant capitalism are what Bryan D. Palmer calls people of the night.
