London : a social and cultural history, 1550-1750 by R. O Bucholz( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1550 and 1750 London became the greatest city in Europe and one of the most vibrant economic and cultural centres in the world. This book is a history of London during this crucial period in its rise to world-wide prominence, during which it dominated the economic, political, social and cultural life of the British Isles. London incorporates the best recent work in urban history, contemporary accounts from Londoners and tourists, and fictional works featuring the city in order to trace London's rise and explore its role as a harbinger of modernity, while examining how its citizens coped with those achievements. London covers the full range of life in London, from the splendid galleries of Whitehall to the damp and sooty alleyways of the East End. Readers will brave the dangers of plague and fire, witness the spectacles of the Lord Mayor's Pageant and the hangings at Tyburn, and take refreshment in the city's pleasure-gardens, coffee-houses and taverns"

Metropolitan communities : trade guilds, identity, and change in early modern London by Joseph P Ward( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author offers an alternative to this view of London's expansion. His argument begins with an analysis of sermons, tracts, and poems suggesting that some Londoners of the time considered the suburbs subject to the same kinds of authority as the City, which consequently made them integral parts of the metropolis. The author then draws on the records of more than twenty guilds to demonstrate that many members lived and worked in the suburbs and were as capable of flaunting City traditions and authority as immigrants; trade guilds, therefore, were metropolitan by nature. The author argues that guilds, as principal sites for the collision of tradition and innovation, generally took a flexible approach to change rather than simply trying to prevent it
Britain and the American South : from colonialism to rock and roll by Jr. History Symposium Porter L. Fortune( Book )

Violence, politics, and gender in early modern England( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book engages in an interdisciplinary study of the establishment and entrenchment of gender roles in early modern England. Drawing upon the methods and sources of literary criticism and social history, this edited volume shows how politics at both the elite and plebeian levels of society involved violence that either resulted from or expressed hostility toward the early modern gender system. Contributors take fresh approaches to prominent works by Shakespeare, Middleton, and Behn as well as discuss lesser known texts and events such as the execution of female heretics in Reformation Norwic
Culture, faith, and philanthropy : Londoners and provincial reform in early modern England by Joseph P Ward( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary observers have noted that land, for centuries the foundation of economic and political power, changed hands at a quickening pace in England during the later sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. As new money - and therefore new people - came into the land market, the social foundations of government shifted, which led inevitably to political crisis. Empowered by new wealth and by their faith, early modern Londoners began to use philanthropy to assert their cultural authority in distant parts of the nation. Culture, Faith, and Philanthropy analyzes how disputes between London and provincial authorities over such benefactions demonstrated the often tense relations between center and periphery
Making space public in early modern Europe : performance, geography, privacy( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Broadening the conversation begun in Making Publics in Early Modern Europe (2009), this book examines how the spatial dynamics of public making changed the shape of early modern society. The publics visited in this volume are voluntary groupings of diverse individuals that could coalesce through the performative uptake of shared cultural forms and practices. The contributors argue that such forms of association were social productions of space as well as collective identities. Chapters explore a range of cultural activities such as theatre performances; travel and migration; practices of persuasion; the embodied experiences of lived space; and the central importance of media and material things in the creation of publics and the production of spaces. They assess a multiplicity of publics that produced and occupied a multiplicity of social spaces where collective identity and voice could be created, discovered, asserted, and exercised. Cultural producers and consumers thus challenged dominant ideas about just who could enter the public arena, greatly expanding both the real and imaginary spaces of public life to include hitherto excluded groups of private people. The consequences of this historical reconfiguration of public space remain relevant, especially for contemporary efforts to meaningfully include the views of ordinary people in public life."--Publisher's website
