"Not only historians but also anthropologists and social scientists will find A Social History of England relevant and engaging...a vivid narrative about the subtle and complex ways that medieval people-from the thirteenth century until the eye of the reformation-accommodated change, ordered and re-ordered social relations, clung to old ways of thinking or altered them, created new values, negotiated economic and institutional constraints, and ultimately contributed to broader discussions of religion, nationality, individualism, ritual, civic ceremony, self identity, and community." Elaine Clark, Journal of Interdisciplinary History
