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.

About the Author:

Ann Hughes is a Professor of Early Modern History, University of Keele.

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


"Hughes has written a very fine book, characterized by a remarkable depth of research and a highly intelligent and imaginative use of a complex body of primary sources. The argument is presented crisply and elegantly, and it sheds more light on the world of Thomas Edwards and Gangraena that one might have though possible. It is a very mature and accomplished piece of scholarship, and its approach is one that might fruitfully be applied to other key texts of the period."--David L. Smith, Selwyn College, Cambridge


"[E]xtremely valuable, especially in allowing her to comment with sensitivity on the infuriatingly complex anatomy of midcentury religious and political nonconformity."--Renaissance Quarterly

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. 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 thevalue 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 ofpropaganda, 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 compellingbook. Seller Inventory # LHB9780199251926
