About the Author

Roger Burt is Professor Emeritus of Economic History at the University of Exeter. He has been a consultant to mining companies and government departments and contributes to radio programmes on mining related issues.


This is the assured and accessible prose of an author who, over the course of a career, has mastered much about communication, Freemasonry, mariners and miners. His detailed and thorough assessment is supported by a scholarly bibliography, helpful references, 3 indexes and over 40 figures, illustrations and tables. Burt has produced an exemplar case study for family and community historians. More than that he challenges the widely presented view that between 1700 and 1900 reciprocity was killed by the impersonal negotiations associated with markets and urbanisation. Through his demonstration and explanation of the materiality of a persistant, overt discourse of brotherly love he has breathed new life into the corpse and indeed questioned if it was ever dead. -- Daniel Weinbren * Family & Community History *
