    This study provides an integrated picture of early modern Westminster, revealing the often problematic relations between the diverse groups of people who constituted local society - the Court, the aristocracy, the Abbey, the middling sort and the poor - and the competing visions of Westminster's identity which their presence engendered. Among the topics discussed are the impact of the Reformation, the building of Whitehall Palace and the problem of poverty and communal responsibility.
