Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
I've just started reading another of Steve's (along with David Atkinson) books of this year 'Street Literature of the Long Nineteenth Century'. Again he is very thorough in his research, using many contemporary accounts, but also very careful in allowing others to draw the conclusions. He is also quite critical of some earlier scholars who have sometimes made statements based on very little evidence. The book is a collection of papers and is published by Cambridge Scholars.

Haven't seen a review yet.
