Ppxi, 186 With colour plate illustration of fox hunting and b&w photographs and illustrations throughout. With prefatory notes to the illustrations,iIntroduction, descriptive notes to the illustrations and index. This is the book in which Trevelyan famously said that social history was 'history with the politics left out'. He was much criticised for this, particularly by Marxists, who took the view that the political and the social were inextricably entwined, indeed that the politics was but a pale reflection of social and economic developments; but it is Trevelyan, not Marx, who has stood the test of time. Anyone wanting to know how medieval England differed from the modern version would do well to start with this introduction, which is beautifully and comprehensively illustrated. S4.
