summary
Mostly forgotten by history, James Carter (1792-1853) was an English tailor and writer, whose life and ideas offer a unique means for comprehending the revolutions at work in British society at the beginning of the nineteenth century, including industrialization, urbanization, heightened migration, rising literacy, and expanding print media, all of which transformed the nature of everyday life for ordinary Britons like Carter.
