5.0 out of 5 stars This book has solid research building upon years of experience., 14 Nov. 2008
This review is from: The Rich at Play: Foxhunting, Land Ownership and the Countryside Alliance (RPM) (Paperback)
The Rich at Play was badly needed at the time to counteract both ahistorical Leftism, post modernism, and the stupid right wing. Rather than look at the foxhunting issue in isolation, the research put the Countryside Alliance and their backers into their correct socio-economic position - as part of the historical ruling classes of the UK.

The excellent research by Corporate Watch and others backed up arguments with empirical evidence, and this could only be dismissed easily by the prejeudiced and right wing. Serious thinkers would actually have to understand and argue with the content of this book. In short, this is an excellent historical contribution to the literature on these subjects.

The other reviewer also seems to not understand the difference between 'quality' and 'quantity'. 'Quality' writing does not need too much space, especially because it is in a popular format designed for mass consumption, and this was a balance the book achieved.
