    Now available in paperback, Cromwell's Legacy is an exciting collection of essays by scholars who are well-known in their fields of research, most of whom have a proven track record of making their scholarship accessible to a wide student and general readership. This study examines different ways in which Cromwell's life and work impacted on Britain and the rest of the world after his death. Each contributor examines Cromwell's legacy, including not only the important central question of Cromwell's impact on the religious, military and political life of Britain after his death but also Britain's relations with Europe and future developments in both North and South America. The structure of this book has been designed to give as wide a coverage of time and place as possible. This book not only sheds light on an aspect of Cromwellian studies that has been comparatively neglected, it will also stimulate further work on this topic.


    'Jane Mills ... has assembled an immensely qualified panel to present essays on various aspects of Oliver Cromwell...Cromwell's legacy is a valuable addition to any twenty-first-century scholar of "one of a small number of British historical figures to be instantly recognizable"'
    Timothy Cooke (Norwich University), H-War, January 2013

    'This is an enjoyable and very useful book and is thus highly recommended.'
    Martyn Bennett, Journal of Church and State, vol 55, no 1, March, 2013

    A distinctive, insightful and informative collection of new essays, part historical/part historiographical, which explore resonances of the Lord Protector's reputation and its different chronologies in England, Scotland, Ireland, mainland Europe, New England and Spanish America, in the short and long term.
    R. C. Richardson, University of Winchester, Times Higher Education, 3 July 2014
