Porter's picture of eighteenth-century England is boldly drawn - he delineates a nation with a stable though flexible political order, a dynamic and developing economy, and a rich and expanding culture. He ranges far and wide, from princes to paupers and from the metropolis to the smallest hamlet. Prisons, rural festivals, diet, housing, bordellos, paintings, plays, work, and wages are just a few of the topics covered in this breathtaking narrative.
