Beautiful books… for beautiful people…

English Society, 1580-1680 - Keith Wrightson

Hutchinson, 1982, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good. Lightly rubbed at the tips of the wraps, head and tail of spine. Text bright and tight.

First in this edition. The first section of the book discusses some of the enduring characteristics of society: social stratification and social mobility, kinship, neighbourliness, patronage and deference, courtship and family formation, relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children. The second half of tile book charts the course of social change: problems of public order, crime and social control, educational and religious developments, and profound changes in popular culture brought about by the growth of popular literacy and the consolidation of the Protestant Reformation.
