Protest, Politics and Work in Rural England, 1700-1850, Paperback / softback Book

Protest, Politics and Work in Rural England, 1700-1850 Paperback / softback

Part of the Social History in Perspective series

Description

Rural workers in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century England were not passive victims in the face of rapid social change.

Carl J. Griffin shows that they deployed an extensive range of resistances to defend their livelihoods and communities.

Locating protest in the wider contexts of work, poverty and landscape change, this new text offers the first critical overview of this growing area of study.
