Praise for the first edition:

"At last students and teachers of early modern England have a sourcebook of their own that is everything they could have asked for. The sources, both old favorites and some refreshing surprises, are enhanced by thought-provoking introductions and reference to the latest scholarship. Most happily, they are printed in substantially long excerpts rather than the unsatisfying snippets available elsewhere." Michael B. Young, Illinois Wesleyan University

"The sources give insight into the lives of individuals as well as politics, religion, and culture. They are also thoughtfully selected and open to a multiplicity of interpretations. Well-chosen illustrations add significantly to the value of the book." Carole Levin, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

“The best textbooks I have used for any class—ever”—Katherine Clark, University of Kansas
