Product description

Title: Regionalism and Revision

The Crown and its Provinces in England 1250 - 1650

Edited by Peter Fleming, Anthony Gross and J.R.Lander

Extract from the Preface:

For the last thirty years historians of later medieval and early modern England have explored regional communities in the hope of developing insights into the nature of pre - modern political society. The county provided many of these historians with their principal focus, since it was assumed to be the most likely framework within which could be forged not only local administrative political associations but also social and cultural identities. However, in recent years this assumption has been called into question - not least by leading exponents of county studies themselves.

The following essays address many of the issues at the heart of the debate over local society. Fundamental to these studies is the question of the nature of relations between centre and periphery. To what extent could local communities be seen as independent of central government - in whose interests the counties were originally created as administrative, military and fiscal units; or were not only local political institutions but also local identity and mentalite largely the product of metropolitan imperatives? Are we correct in seeing institutional principle as the root of local solidarities, or were relations with the Crown and its sometimes overweening officers grounded in more pragmatic and immediate concerns, so that faction - fighting and opportunism rather than ideology, were the usual causes of conflicts between 'court' and 'country'?

The book is in good condition throughout.

The book has blue boards and gilt lettering to the spine and upper board.

As can be seen from the pictures there is a signature in the upper corner of the front endpages dated 08.

There is bumping to the upper part of the spine

There is bumping to the upper outer corner of the rear board.

There are mild scratches on the rear board.
