This is a social history of England from the days of the first Stuart king, James, when England was largely an agricultural and rural country through the reign of Queen Victoria, when England had become the world's foremost industrial and Imperial giant. This is a social history in a very clear sense, because Sir Arthur, as is characteristic of him, never writes about historical events without showing how they affected the lives of the people - and not only the people of the highest classes of society, but all people, from courtier and king to peasant and yeoman. Includes an Index.
