Jon Stobart, Professor of History, University of Northampton
Jon Stobart has published widely on the history of consumption, retailing, and leisure in eighteenth-century England, and has particular interests in the spatiality of consumption and the operation of the second-hand market.
"At a time when the fascination with all aspects of food, from production to consumption, has never been stronger, this is a welcome publication, set to earn a place among the most useful recent books on the history of food." - R. M. Healey, Times Literary Supplement
"Stobart offers an important contribution to the field of consumption history." - Kate Smith, Review in History
