Albion's People : English Society, 1714-1815 Paperback
by John Rule
Part of the Social & Economic History of England series
This second volume of John Rule's major two-volume portrait of Georgian England is a comprehensive and authoritative survey of eighteenth-century society, incorporating the exciting new research findings of recent years.
It deals in turn with the upper class, 'middling sort' and lower orders; with popular education, religion and culture; with standards of living in town and country; and with crime, punishment and protest.
The book, which is as rich and varied as the age it explores, ends with an assessment of continuity and change across the century.
