Customs in Common
Conceived as a companion to The Making of the English Working Class, this study describes the culture of working people in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Discussing themes including law and agrarian practice, the ‘moral economy of the crowd’, work, and rough music, Thompson describes the gradual disappearance of working-class customs during the period of industrialization and economic change. First published in 1993. Slightly off-mint.
