Beschreibung

"We know much more about the court and the country in early modern England than we do about urban society and life. What Tittler . . . does successfully in this fine and innovative book is to tell us about this relatively hidden England and to give it a human face by discussing specific individual lives."--Paul S. Seaver, Stanford University
"This brief book will enhance Robert Tittler's reputation as a sensitive interpreter of the early modern English urban experience. . . . All of the stories are interesting and well told. . . . Robert Tittler has written a short, but fascinating book on English urban life from about 1540 to 1640. Everyone interested in early modern England will profit from reading it."--Renaissance Quarterly

Pressestimmen

'We know much more about the court and the country in early modern England than we do about urban society and life. What Tittler sets out to do, and does successfully in this fine and innovative book, is to tell us about this relatively hidden England and to give it a human face by discussing specific individual lives. It is time that early modern English urban society was put on the map, and Tittler's study might just do it.' Paul S. Seaver, Stanford University
