About the Author

Michael J. Braddick (b. 1962) has taught at the University of Sheffield since 1990, having held previous positions at the University of Alabama and Birmingham-Southern College, Alabama. His major study State Formation in Early Modern England c. 1550-1700 (2000) was published by Cambridge University Press. John Walter is Professor of History at the University of Essex. His book Understanding Popular Violence in the English Revolution: The Colchester Plunderers (1999) was published by Cambridge University Press and won the Royal Historical Society's Whitfield Prize. Previously Professor Walter was editor of Famine, Disease and the Social Order in Early Modern Society (also CUP, 1989, paperback 1991).


'The editors' achievement is that they have assimilated all the best recent work on their theme and set out a prospectus for fruitful analysis of power relations in early modern England that leaves behind the well-worn dynamic of elite and popular cultures in favour of a highly sophisticated new model. They bring out the sheer complexity of social and political relations in England and Ireland, and provide a convincing framework for further research.' Professor Anthony Fletcher, Institute of Historical Research, University of London
