Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With the skill of a consummate historian, Thompson introduces, challenges, and demlishes established visions of who the gentry were and what gentrification entailed as he arrives at his own more open and elastic model. This makes Thompson's work important not only as a revisionist cultural history of gentrification and the enterprise culture but also as a critical evaluation of extant scholarship on the subject."—History

"This admirable study...should be required reading for students of British economic history in the modern period."—Economic History
