Lord and Peasant in Nineteenth Century Britain Hardback
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: The Victorian World series
First published in 1980, this book looks at the social structure of 18th and 19th century rural Britain.
It is particularly concerned with the relationship of landlord and peasant in the rural village and examines the open-closed model of English rural social structure in great depth.
In doing so, it explores the ways in which the estate system influenced urban development and how the peasant system facilitated the industrialisation of many villages. This book will be of particular interest to students of Victorian and social history, industrialisation and urbanisation.
