ABSTRACT
The concept of social banditry introduced by Eric I. Hobsbawm needs to be refined. It is suggested that the new definition drop certain nonsignificant criteria, that it include sea-faring bandits, and that a sharp distinction be made between the historical reality of each bandit and the mythical form that this reality assumes in the tales told about him. This given, it is possible to hypothesize that social banditry is an alternative to rebellion, mass migration or revitalization.
