Product description


Provocative, full of insights into neglected phases of eighteenth-century social history, and at times profound. --J.H. Plumb, Observer

Close, meticulous scholarship, imagination, a joyous use of literary and 'qualitative' evidence ... and the driving force of commitment make it memorable. --Guardian

Immensely advances our understanding both of Hanoverian England and of the relationship between law and society in general. --Keith Thomas
