INTRODUCTION: Although I have attempted to bring this book up to date in the light of the most recent publications 1941, it was nearly all written before the war. I then had in view a social history of England from the Roman times to our own, but I left to the last the part that I would find most difficult, the centuries preceding the Fourteenth. The war has rendered it impossible for me to complete the work, but it has occurred to me that the chapters which I have already finished constitute a consecutive story of six centuries, from the Fourteenth to the Nineteenth, and as such some readers may give it welcome. Social history might be defined negatively as the history of a people with the politics left out. It is perhaps difficult to leave out the politics from the history of any people, particularly the English people. But as so many history books have consisted of political annals with little reference to their social environment, a reversal of that method may have its uses to redress the balance. During my own lifetime a third very flourishing sort of history has come into existence, the economic, which greatly assists the serious study of social history. For the social scene grows out of economic conditions, to much the same extent that political events in their turn grow out of social conditions. Without social history, economic history is barren and political history is unintelligible. But social history does not merely provide the required link between economic and political history. . .

Synopsis: G.M. Trevelyan maintains that Social history is "the history of a people with the politics left out". In this book, he paints an authentic picture of everyday English life over six varied centuries up until 1901, capturing every great ebb and flow of the social changes that took place in this country. This fascinating book is highly recommended for those with an interest in English history, and it would make for a fantastic addition to any collection. George Macaulay Trevelyan (1876 ? 1962) was a British historian and academic. Other notable works by this author include: ?Garibaldi and the Making of Italy? (1911), ?The Life of John Bright? (1913), and ?Clio, A Muse and Other Essays? (1913). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
