Format: Hardcover
Have just started this book, and so far it is excellent.

For anyone with an interest of the emergence of the social reform movement out of radical political and theological ideas, then this is a book you won't be able to put down.

There are some very interesting details about the Southcottian movement following the death of Joanna Southcott in 1814. Maps show the distribution of the sects that developed after her death.

My only small niggle is that it would have been nice if the maps showed exactly which towns/cities rather than being vague indications.

All in all, an extremely well researched book.
