Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
By asking pertinent, awkward questions, the contributors to this volume explore the relations within, between and beyond the three kingdoms with regard to the British problem during the 17th century.
Main Description
These essays offer fresh and exciting research, often by younger scholars, and innovative insights from regional, national, and international perspectives.
Unpaid Annotation
The 'British Problem' has come to dominate the historiographical agenda of the three kingdoms in the seventeenth century. This volume aims to challenge traditional interpretations and to offer constructive suggestions about how the 'New British Histories' might be fruitfully re-appraised and situated in wider geographical, methodological and cultural contexts. By asking pertinent 'awkward' questions the book will explore the relations within, between and beyond the three kingdoms and accentuate the positive aspects of 'awkwardness'. These essays offer fresh and exciting research, often by younger scholars, and innovative insights from regional, national, and international perspectives.
