Little integrates the latest research from younger and established scholars to provide a new evaluation and 'biography' of Cromwell. The book challenges received wisdom about Cromwell's rise to power, his political and religious beliefs, his relationship with various communities across the British Isles and his role as Lord Protector.

Editorial Reviews

"This is an excellent contribution to Cromwellian biographical pointillism: it demonstrates clearly that the Cromwell scholarship is a dynamic and living entity. It presents us in so many ways with New Model Cromwell."
- Martyn Bennett, Professor of Early Modern History, Nottingham Trent University
