The seventeenth century has always been seen as important for the development of the modern English state. Over the past twenty years, however, this view has been criticized heavily and no general account of the development of the state in this period has yet emerged. On the basis of a wide-ranging synthesis of specialist work in diverse fields of English, British and colonial history, this book makes a novel argument about the modernization of the seventeenth-century English state, and of the role of class and gender interests in its development.

Review:

"Braddick leads an impressive tour through social, political and intellectual history in his account of state formation." Journal of Modern History

"One virtue of this volume is that it draws a number of topics of interest from 'other' social sciences and explicates them in the framework of the historian's language. There is little jargon, and putting the state back in the middle of it all is both an old tradition and a corrective to modern work that tends to relegate it to the outer boundaries...Braddick is to be commended for his discussion of important issues." Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"Braddick's achievement is one of theoretical synthesis, the incorporation of material that is familiar enough in other contexts into a new meganarrative, and one that is complex and flexible enough to look useful for colleagues and students alike. It is a fine piece of work." Historian

"...the author marshals an impressive array of works on social, political, military, and religious history." Seventeenth-Century News

"That this is a fine book--deeply informed, synoptic, carefully reasoned--there can be little doubt." Albion

"This is a major work of synthesis, offering important insights into 'th development of the English state in the long seventeenth century'... , notably the state's impact 'in English villages and wards' ... This is a fine book, well written, convincingly argued, and based on an astonishingly wide range of secondary literature." Sixteenth Century Journal

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This book examines the development of the English state during the long seventeenth century, emphasising the impersonal forces which shape the uses of political power, rather than the purposeful actions of individuals or groups. It is a study of state formation rather than of state building. The author s approach does not however rule out the possibility of discerning patterns in the development of the state, and a coherent account emerges which offers some alternative answers to relatively well-established questions. In particular, it is argued that the development of the state in this period was shaped in important ways by social interests - particularly those of class, gender and age. It is also argued that this period saw significant changes in the form and functioning of the state which were, in some sense, modernising. The book therefore offers a narrative of the development of the state in the aftermath of revisionism. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521789554
