Description - War and British Society 1688-1815 by H. V. Bowen
In this book, the author draws on much new research to examine the effects of sustained warfare on eighteenth-century British society. War was a "characteristic feature" of the period, but recently the centrality of war in the development of Britain's economy and society has become increasingly apparent. The author shows that between 1688 and 1815 war touched all aspects of life in Britain, transforming a wide range of economic and social institutions, processes and structures. This book will be essential reading for all students of eighteenth-century British history, society and culture.
