Albion's People : English Society 1714-1815 Paperback

Part of the Social and 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.
