Oliver Cromwell New Perspectives

Synopsis

Oliver Cromwell New Perspectives by Patrick Little

Little integrates the latest research from younger and established scholars to provide a new evaluation and 'biography' of Cromwell. The book challenges received wisdom about Cromwell's rise to power, his political and religious beliefs, his relationship with various communities across the British Isles and his role as Lord Protector.

Reviews

'This is a collection of essays that are startlingly fresh in their judgements: it presents a whole series of challenges to the entrenched view of Cromwell as a man driven by religious zeal and little else.' - John Morrill FBA, Professor of British and Irish History, University of Cambridge 'This book...contains many useful insights into his [Cromwell's] character and how contemporaries saw him.' - Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research'
