Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This volume reflects the latest scholarship on the Diggers and their leader George Winstanley. Among the themes explored in these essays are the power and continuing influence of Winstanley's writings, his ideas on civil liberty, the economic and political background against which the Diggers operated, their treatment at the hands of their opponents, their attitudes toward women and the family, and the role of the Bible in their thinking. Some essays also consider the extent to which historical research can present a clear picture of the movement and the figure of Winstanley himself. Contributors include scholars from the United States and the United Kingdom, in fields such as history, political theology, English, and women's studies. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c.
