Honoring the memory of Professor Alan Everitt—who advanced the fruitful notion of the county community during the 17th century—this volume proposes some modifications to Everitt’s influential hypotheses in the light of the best recent scholarship.MoreHonoring the memory of Professor Alan Everitt—who advanced the fruitful notion of the county community during the 17th century—this volume proposes some modifications to Everitt’s influential hypotheses in the light of the best recent scholarship. With an important reevaluation of political engagement in civil war Kent and an assessment of numerous midland and southern counties as well as Wales, this record evaluates the extraordinary impact of Everitt’s book and the debate it provoked. Comprehensive and enlightening, this collection suggests future directions for research into the relationship between the center and localities in 17th-century England.
