Product description

The great merit of Macfarlane s book is that it poses questions; it teaches historians to look very much more closely, and in new ways, at familiar evidence; it brings familiar relationships into the centre of scrutiny; and it offers, in a significant way, the unit of one man s life, and of one man s economic fortunes, as a focus of study. E. P. Thompson, Midland History"

Back cover copy

Ralph Josselin kept for almost forty years a remarkably detailed account of his life- his mental and emotional world as well as his activities. Few diaries from this period afford such a rounded picture of a family from so many aspects.
