Editorial Reviews


"This is a very impressive and broad ranging discussion of the interplay of print, sectarian identity, and widening political participation."
- H-Albion, Ted Vallance, School of History, University of Liverpool

"There is simply nothing not to praise about Peters's work. Wide-ranging in its research, unobtrusive in dialogue with other historians, careful and thoughtful in its conclusions, it is an important contribution to our understanding of both a religious movement and a critical period in British history." - Thomas D. Hamm, Earlham College

"With her very readable work, Peters gives us a detailed and new understanding of why Quakers were seen as such a threat by their contemporaries and why they were the only radical sect not justs to survive the Interregnum, but to flourish well beyond. This book is recommended as a valuable addition to both the scholarship and the classroom." - Jane E. Calvert, St. Mary's College of Maryland

Book Description

From its outset in the 1650s, the Quaker movement was usually prolific in its use of the printing press to spread its message. Using very rich documentary evidence, this book explores how and why early Quaker leaders made use of printed tracts in their campaign, looking at how the tracts were produced, distributed and read, and how they were used as part of the Quakers' dynamic campaign for religious and political liberty during the period of republican rule under Oliver Cromwell.
