Resistance to the New Poor Law in the Rural South / Roger Wells -- 7. Southern Chartism / Roger Wells -- 8. Social Crime in the Rural South in the Eighteenth and Early Nineteenth Centuries / John Rule -- 9. Crime and Protest in a Country Parish: Burwash, 1790-1850 / Roger Wells -- 10. The Manifold Causes of Rural Crime: Sheep-Stealing in England, c. 1740-1840 / John Rule.
Summary: Southern England has been studied considerably less than the industrializing north and midlands in the debate on the standard of living in the period up to 1850. Yet it is becoming clear that it was in the south and in the countryside that the greatest poverty and deprivation was to be found. These essays examine responses to the struggle to live. The responses ranged from, at the most extreme, sheep-stealing and incendiarism to joining in food riots in an attempt to impose a "moral economy". More sustained protest is to be seen in passive and sometimes active resistance to authority.
