I've run out of renewals so this one goes to limbo. It's fascinating, though, even if I don't understand many of the references and much of the context. It's also very dense -- not because it's densely written, but because it's packed so full of facts. It's truly a monumental effort and even with having only managed 163 pages, I can somewhat see where things are going and why all the little occurrences (and some not-so-little ones) are important to document in detail because it was all those fits and starts and permutations that added up to what the English Working Class became.
