Book: Langford Paul «A Polite and Commercial People. England, 1727-1783»

A Polite and Commercial People. England, 1727-1783

Производитель: "OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS"

Drawing on up-to-date research, this volume in The New Oxford History of England is the most authoritative and comprehensive general history of England between the accession of George II and the loss of the American colonies. Delving beneath the surface serenity of the age of elegance, Paul Langford reveals a world of simmering discontent in which evangelical enthusiasm clashed with scientific rationalism, aristocratic government with popular insubordination, industrial and imperial expansion with plebian poverty, and sentimentality with utilitarian reform.
