This book provides an account of the rise of social institutions in Georgian Britain: the British clubs and societies, thousands of which had swept the country by 1800. Ranging from freemasonry to bird-fancying, the author considers the reasons for their development, their export to America and the colonies, and examines their long-term impact.
