Overview

The book is the first full analysis of the gentry in the early modern period since G.E.Mingay The Gentry: the Rise and Fall of a Ruling Class (1976).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Social and cultural history at its best, this is a comprehensive group portrait of the gentry in early modern England and Wales, tracing them through a period that saw the creation of the early modern state, the Protestant Reformation, and civil war and revolution. The authors’ scholarship is impressive, and they have an eye for the telling detail.”
—Paul S. Seaver, Stanford University
