9780521093460: Men, Women and Property in England, 1780-1870: A Social and Economic History of Family Strategies amongst the Leeds Middle Class

R.J. Morris reveals how middle class families survived and surmounted the economic difficulties of early industrial England through an examination of wills, family papers, property deeds, account books and letters from the period. He argues that these families were essentially "networked" families created and affirmed by "gift" networks of material goods, finance, services and support--with property very much at the center of their middle class family strategies.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This is an innovative study of middle-class behaviour and property relations in English towns in Georgian and Victorian Britain. Through the lens of wills, family papers, property deeds, account books and letters, the author offers a reading of the ways in which middle-class families survived and surmounted the economic difficulties of early industrial society. He argues that these were essentially networked families created and affirmed by a gift network of material goods, finance, services and support, with property very much at the centre of middle-class survival strategies. His approach combines microhistorical studies of individual families with a broader analysis of the national and even international networks within which these families operated. The result is a significant contribution to the history, and to debates about the place of structural and cultural analysis in historical understanding. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521093460
