These essays engage in the debate over county or local society in late medieval and early modern England and the fundamental question of the nature of relations between centre and periphery. They also explore the fluidity of contemporary conceptions of the 'county', addressing the multiple identities of local community. Among the essay topics are: the significance of the county in English government; the dissolution of St Augustine's Abbey and the creation of the Diocese of Bristol; and the Cinque Ports. No jacket.
