The classic of it's type - educational, but not dry. Not as overloaded as the social history of Hibbert, and adequately informative for the casual reader. Ripe with surprising trivia and always embracing the wider picture - but never laboured or self indulgent. This is the old-school of history writing at it's best, and anyone with a serious interest in history will have heard of it. If you read one such publication make it this.

I have an original copy of this book and find it quite captivating for its wide ranging insight into the lives of English citizens over six centuries. Trevelyan has the knack of engaging the reader in a way very few historians can. I read it time and time again and it has reignited my passion for social history.

A wonderful, well-written survey of social history in England, enjoyable yet scholarly.

Considering the inscription inside reads 1992 the condition is fairly good - personally I'd put it somewhere between fair and good. The pages are very yellowed, but they would be after 24 years! Other than that I am happy with my purchase. It arrived on time and was pretty much as described.Thanks
