Praise For…


"Professor Orlin possesses an enviable intellectual sharpness and breadth, an understanding of her audience, and a scholarly acumen. The book covers everything a reader could conceivably want to know about early modern England -- religion, the family, philosophy, high culture, trade, everyday life and more. I find it impossible to imagine who could fail to learn from this volume." --Andrew Hadfield, Head of English, University of Sussex
