Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is the kind of book in which it might be said that any English historian, whatever their period and however expert they may be, would take pleasure and discover some new insight." —Albion

"One of the few books to handle the subject of "the land," as well as other aspects of English rural society, in many years. It is a thorough treatment of the English landscape and should be useful to students and scholars seeking background information for projects on rural England." —Agricultural History
