This book was conceived at a meeting of the Caius Historical Society when it became clear that these three distinguished scholars had all, at different times, been working separately in Cambridge on different aspects of the commercialization of eighteenth-century England. All three contributors have done further recent work in this area and are convinced that together they have identified an important and neglected historical phenomenon which deserves both greater recognition and more detailed attention. 345pp. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.)
