Teacher and Student agreed on abandoning the project (May 30th) and try another one. In the course of the research on this topic, the information we were looking for, placing the history of the dissenting churches into the political history of England in the period from the 17th to the early 19th century proved rather elusive, as the accounts accessed proved to focus on internal matters within the respective dissident community. The student had spent three months on the project, had acquired a number of books, and still did not have a solid information basis on which to write a paper.

List my UK table of Contents page, not because of the value of my textfiles listed there (outdated, not specific enough), but because of the links and books listed : http://www.zum.de/whkmla/region/britain/xuk.html

regarding the 'expensive' books - did you check if they were available at www.abebooks.com ? That's the lowest price avenue I know.
