It brings together cutting-edge scholarship that challenge the accepted view of Cromwell. It is accessibly written to capitalise on the general interest in Cromwell and to appeal to A-level students.Little integrates the latest research from younger and established scholars to provide a new evaluation and 'biography' of Cromwell.
