The early Quakers denounced the clergy and social 'elite but what of Friends' relationships with others? By examining Quaker attitudes to neighbourliness, the family, the rites of passage, business, and other links, this lively and original study demonstrates that Quakers were not the marginal and isolated people as often portrayed by contemporaries and historians, and explores the their wider and significant impact upon early modern society.
