Customs in Common is the remarkable companion to E. P. Thompson's landmark volume of social history The Making of the English Working Class. The product of years of research and debate, Customs in Common describes the complex culture from which working-class institutions emerged in England--a panoply of traditions and customs that the new working class fought to preserve well into Victorian times.

E.P. Thompson (1924–1993)was one of England's foremost historians and social critics. He was the author of many books, including The Making of the English Working Class and Witness Against the Beast: William Blake and the Moral Law, published by The New Press.Review:
By providing a fuller sense of the way of life capitalism destroyed, Customs in Common helps us understand why the resistance to it was so protracted and tenacious. . . [This] long-awaited collection. . . is a signal contribution. . . [from] the person most responsible for inspiring the revival of American labor history during the past thirty years. -- The Nation
Customs in Common is meticulously researched, elegantly argued and deeply humane. -- New York Times Book Review
This book signals the return to historical writing of one of the most eloquent, powerful and independent voices of our time. At his best he is capable of a passionate, sardonic eloquence which is unequalled. -- The Observer [London]
