Revised edition. London: Longman. Coward’s novel offers an outline of the social structures in England that started up to and walled the deliverance of the book. This novel is separated into three major sections: “The Structure of Early Modern English Society,” “Changing Material Conditions,” and “Changing Ideas.” This book also includes two follow up sections: “Assessment” and “Documents.” The text of the novel is comprehensive, yet simply logical for those who are first-hand to the topic area and helps to decorate the social background in which the novel first came forth as a fictional form.
