Early Modern British and Irish History 1500-1700: Society andCulture in Four Nations takes an innovative comparativeapproach to the social and cultural history of England, Ireland,Scotland and Wales during the period when they came under the ruleof a single monarch. This accessible and engaging synthesis will beof use to teachers and students of any or all of the constituentparts of the British and Irish Isles in the early modern period,and will also appeal to anyone interested more generally in thisturbulent period.

Within the context of recent debates on the ‘New BritishHistory’, the book looks at the experiences of theinhabitants of the islands and their contacts with their fellowcitizens, whether locally or further afield. It explores theconstruction of ideas about national origins and identities, andconsiders how ideas about ethnic difference shaped both violent andpeaceful interactions between and within nations. The developmentof competing religious identities is traced, but despitetheological differences, many aspects of belief – in itswidest sense – were familiar throughout the islands.Likewise, concerns with life from birth to death, with status andreputation, and with being part of families and communities, werecommon to the populations of different areas.
