    'The book goes a long way into making the activities of the Oddfellows accessible. It is brought to life by the inclusion of members views and feelings about their organisation, emphasising the strong family tradition connected with the Unity. Academically the book has clearly been meticulously researched and for anyone interested in the history of friendly society Orders it is a thoroughly good read (Roger Logan, Foresters’ Heritage Trust)

    'fills and important and neglected aspect of our social and economic life ... an invaluable source of information' (Journal of Co-operative Studies).

    'A rich text… detailed and important history [with] a significance beyond the Order….an admirable work of history…. The Oddfellows offers a con textually rich, historiographically complex picture … superbly illustrated … an excellent summary of the current state of the fraternal history and an indicator of its future potential.' (Journal for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism)
