"[This] is an important contribution to our understanding of the transformations in England's economic, political, and social order between 1550 and 1850. Kuchta handles his assumptions, sources, and arguments with sure-handed grace."-Susan Kingsley Kent, author of Gender and Power in Britain, 1640 to 1990
