Britain in the early eighteenth century: an introduction that is both informative and imaginative, reliable and entertaining. To the tradition of travel writing Daniel Defoe brings a lifetime's experience as a businessman, soldier, economic journalist and spy, and his Tour (1724-6) is an invaluable source of social and economic history. But this book is far more than a beautifully written guide to Britain just before the industrial revolution, for Defoe possessed a wild, inventive streak that endows his work with astonishing energy and tension, and the Tour is his deeply imaginative response to a brave new economic world. By employing his skills as a chronicler, a polemicist and a creative writer keenly sensitive to the depredations of time, Defoe more than achieves his aim of rendering 'the present state' of Britain.

Abwarten, Tee trinken, weiterreisen! Vor über dreißig Jahren beschloss der Amerikaner Bill Bryson, England zu seiner Wahlheimat zu machen und für einige Jahre dort zu leben. Damals brach er auf zu einer großen Erkundungsreise quer über die britische Insel. Inzwischen ist er ein alter Hase, was die Eigentümlichkeiten der Engländer betrifft, aber dennoch entdeckt er immer wieder Neues, was ihn fasziniert und amüsiert. Kein Wunder also, dass es ihn reizt, diese Insel erneut ausgiebig zu bereisen. Von Bognor Regis bis Cape Wrath, vom englischen Teehaus bis zum schottischen Pub, von der kleinsten Absteige bis zum noblen Hotel, Bryson lässt nichts aus und beantwortet zahlreiche Fragen. Wie heißt der Big Ben eigentlich wirklich? Wer war Mr. Everest? Warum verstehen sich Amerikaner und Engländer nur bedingt? Bill Bryson will noch einmal wissen, was dieses Land so liebenswert macht, und begibt sich auf den Weg – schließlich ist er wieder reif für die Insel!

'This volume includes more than 2000 letters, and has been excellently edited by Simon Smith, with extensive indexing by place, name and subject. It greatly adds to our knowledge of an important but relatively poorly documented subject.' -English Historical Review'A rich source for local, social and economic historians. A special bouquet is due to Dr Smith for his substantial introduction, a book in itself, which provides so much background information.' -The Keswick Reminder'This very important publication, which contributes significantly to the historical resources available for our two counties... will give great pleasure and interest to many.' -Cumberland andamp; Westmorland Antiquarian andamp; Archaeological Society Newsletter'An enormous range of topics appears in the excellent subject index.' -Cumberland andamp; Westmorland Antiquarian andamp; Archaeological Society NewsletterThe letters of Joseph Symson provide a rare glimpse into the public and private life of an inland merchant who was also a member of England's urban elite. The volume reveals how Symson organised his trade and attempted to organise his family. It details his responses to the political, economic, and religious uncertainties of the early years of the eighteenth century. These letters portray both a closely-knit society of north west mercantile families based on regional affiliation and kinship; and a wider world of trade increasingly integrated with the economies of England, Ireland and Scotland - a world linked to the expansion of the Atlantic economy.
