(p.154) Chapter Nine Pilfering, Customs Fees, and Remuneration
Customs and Excise


Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of pilfering and perquisites, which were part of an alternative economy that was vast and absorbed much of the working poor. This common economy created prospects for linking hatred of the state and radical politics, but it also offered the opportunities poor man or woman agency as he or she sought chances to line their pockets. The chapter then discusses custom fees and remuneration.
