This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book. The book includes the studies that arose from a larger and continuing project. Each was designed to support an argument for the importance of contextualising crowd actions. The book focuses on social and economic conflicts in early modern England. A consistent theme running through the author's work discussed in the book is reflected in the essays that follow. The theme is the crowd actions were necessarily political and need to be understood in the context of a popular political culture. The book concludes by offering early and later statements of the author's understanding of the context for the exercise of a popular agency provided by the deep structures of the English state.
