"Ecrit d'une plume aisee, bien construit et enrichi de quelques illustrations tirees des marges de l'Urgichtbuch de la ville, le livre de J.P.C. offre pour la premiere fois une vision approfondie de la pratique du bannissement dans l'une des plus importantes communautes urbaines du Saint-Empire. [...] Un livre utile donc, car il comble partiellement une lacune criante, mais l'enquete reste ouverte." Falk Bretschneider, Revue de l'Institut Francais d'Histoire en Allemagne, 3 (2011) pp. 389-392.

"Coy is to be commneded for a volume that is concise and focused, carefully reasoned and rich with examples. Indeed, this volume should encourage wider study of banishment across early modern Europe and spur further research on this crucial, common, and often overlooked feature of urban life."
J. Jeffery Tyler, Renaissance Quarterly, 62 (2009) 974-975.

"Within its rather strict limits, this is a solid and imaginative study of a sixteenth-century Imperial city, one that sets down conclusions that will prompt comparison with other towns as future scholars look to see how widely applicable Coy's conclusions may be"
H.C. Erik Midelfort, The Journal of Central European History, 43 (2010) 346-348.
Banishment was crucial to law enforcement in early modern Europe, as magistrates used expulsion to punish and control thousands of offenders convicted of crimes ranging from adultery to theft. While early modern social control has attracted considerable scholarly attention in recent decades, banishment has been largely neglected. This book examines the role of banishment in sixteenth-century Ulm, an important south German city-state, using the town's experience to uncover how early modern magistrates used expulsion to regulate and reorder society. This investigation sheds new light on the application of authority, the intersection between official disciplinary efforts and customary behavioral norms, and the function of public expulsion in displaying and defending social hierarchies, issues central to our historical understanding of the period.
