About the Author

BARRY REAY is Professor of History at the University of Auckland.


'This is an encompassing and impressive survey of "rural England". On everything that he deals with, Barry Reay is professionally well-informed and his touch and erudition are highly reliable.' - Keith Snell, Centre for English Local History, University of Leicester '[Barry Reay] is especially good at demonstrating the fecund imagination of the rural commons, apparent in its remarkable musical tradition (often crude and lewd), bizarre pastimes and elaborate sporting pursuits.' - BBC History Magazine 'This valuable book stimulates research, and underlines the potential for further local and regional enquiry.' - Dick Hunter, Family& Community History
