4.0 out of 5 stars Real People living Real Lives - how History should be, 27 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This is a fabulous book, firmly focused upon real people living real lives during a period of profound change. E P Thompson knows not only that the price of bread is an important issue, but also how to make the reader enter into the economic and moral debates of the past. I especially enjoyed the chapters on The Moral Economy and Wife Sales. Read this book and then choose your own favourites. This is how history should be.

Whilst quite a thick book to read in one go this book is a valuable reference tool for any undergrad studying history of industrial development period. EP Thompson delivers as usual

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Customs in Common', lets have a book in common, 27 April 1999
By A Customer
'Customs in Common' looks at the food riots of 18th Century Britain and the Patrician and Plebian culture (aristocracy and working class)Giving useful facts and statistics this is well written and easily understandable. Although it does become a little annoying that most of the pages are half taken up with footnotes. Clear, concise, and as a University History student a must!
