Overview

The first installment of a pioneering trilogy that would include The Town Labourer (1917) and The Skilled Labourer (1919), this 1911 volume established the Hammonds as revisionist historians whose meticulous research and persuasive prose not only illuminated the past but could influence contemporary social debates.  Here the authors focused on the effects of enclosure measures on the rural poor.
