This chapter discusses the theme of this book, which is about market culture and popular protest in Great Britain and Ireland during the eighteenth century. The chapters deal with the marketing and provision of foodstuffs, focusing on the question of what we may learn from popular protests against market changes to help us understand the development of social, economic, and political relations in the eighteenth century. They reflect the tensions occasioned by threats to the cultural norms and values that surrounded commodity exchange.
