The Character of Credit: Personal Debt in English Culture, 1740-1914

الغلاف الأمامي
Cambridge University Press, 21‏/08‏/2003 - 362 من الصفحات
Using a wide range of printed and manuscript sources, and paying particular attention to distinctions of gender and of class, Margot Finn examines English consumer culture from three interlocking perspectives: representations of debt in novels, diaries and autobiographical memoirs; the transformation of imprisonment for debt; and the use of small claims courts to mediate disputes between debtors and creditors. This major new study of personal debt from 1740 to 1914 will appeal to social, legal and cultural historians, literary scholars and those interested in the history of consumer culture.
