Sobre o livro
This original study of early-modern agrarian society examines the small landholders in a group of parishes in the Somerset Levels. These were farmers with lifehold tenures and a mixed agricultural production whose activities and outlook are shown to be very different from that of the small 'peasant' farmers of so many general histories.
