Review: Man and the Natural World: Changing Attitudes in England, 1500-1800

User Review  - Katie - Goodreads

I did not actually intend to read this thing, not entirely. I am using it for research so I planned to skim through, find the useful bits. Use it and Lose it. BUT...it was just so damn thorough in a surprisingly interesting way...so I read the whole thing. It was good...seriously. Read full review

User Review  - Julia Lee Dean - Goodreads

Excellent book. My research took me to one chapter only in any detail but Keith Thomas is a very well respected historian so for early modern history, he should be among your top ten. Read full review
