Description: Great Britain, Leicester University Press, 1973. 2nd Impression, Binding: Soft Cover, Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" Tall Octavo 0718511212 Paperback Paperback. The Community of Kent and the Great Rebellion. 1640-60. Previous owners name and date to inside cover. Slight foxing to edge. Crease to corner back cover and a couple of slight marks. Perhaps no event in English history tore aside the veil concealing the innermost secrets of society quite so ruthlessly as did the Great Rebellion. During the momentous event the springs of human activity were opened with a suddenness that terrified contemporaries and has fascinated historians ever since. Despite its ancient, centralized covernment, the England of 1640 resembled in amny respects a union of partially independent county-states or communities, each with its own distinct ethos and loyalty. Not all, of course, were equally indenpendent, but all were subject to the same social and political pressures, compelling them to sink their intense localism in the larger loyalties of the nation-state. This book traces the effects of these influences upon the life of one such community, that of Kent. 356 pp.
