The poaching wars in Britain. First in this edition. From the cover: “The game-law struggle engaged English writers from Crabbe to Kipling and politicians from Cobbett and Bright to Joseph Chamberlain and Lloyd George. Focusing on social rank and landed power, the conflict throws a penetrating light on shifting patterns of power and class alliance in Britain, and on the often harsh realities of rural life and justice in the last two centuries.”
