9780199251926: Gangraena and the Struggle for the English Revolution

This meticulously researched and wide-ranging book is the first comprehensive study of Thomas Edwards's Gangraena, probably the most important printed work of the English revolution. It provides a vivid account of the printed polemic of the revolution and its place in the religious and political mobilisation of the mid-1640s. Hughes's book is a contribution to the history of Presbyterianism, of London, of parliamentarian fragmentation, and of reading during the revolution. It combines the new `history of the book' with a concern for politics and religion during the crisis of the English revolution.

Review:


"A powerfully argued and wide-ranging study. This volume represents a major scholarly achievement and will be essential reading." --SHARP News


"There is a great deal to admire in Hughes's book, not least in its exemplary scholarship and its integration of empirical research with theoretical approaches borrowed from post-structuralism/postmodernism."--Edward Vallance, Journal of Modern History

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. 216 x 142 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This is the first comprehensive study of Gangraena, an intemperate anti-sectarian polemic written by a London Presbyterian Thomas Edwards and published in three parts in 1646. These books, which bitterly opposed any moves to religious toleration, were the most notorious and widely debated texts in a Revolution in which print was crucial to political moblization. They have been equally important to later scholars who have continued the lively debate over the value of Gangraena as a source for the ideas and movements its author condemned. This study includes a thorough assessment of the usefulness of Edwards s work as a historical source, but goes beyond this to provide a wide-ranging discussion of the importance of Gangraena in its own right as a lively work of propaganda, crucial to Presbyterian campaigning in the mid-1640s. Contemporary and later readings of this complex text are traced through a variety of methods, literary and historical, with discussions of printed responses, annotations and citation. Hughes s work thus provides a vivid and convincing picture of revolutionary London and a reappraisal of the nature of 1640s Presbyterianism, too often dismissed as conservative. Drawing on the newer histories of the book and of reading, Hughes explores the influence of Edwards s distasteful but compelling book. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780199251926
