James Daybell’s most popular book is Histories of the Unexpected: How Everything Has a History.

The contributors take as their inspiration Barbara Harris's important "Women and Politics in Early Tudor England" (1990).

This collection of fourteen essays is dedicated, as James Daybell points out in the introduction, to expanding our conception of the political domain in such a way as to include women. The contributors take as their inspiration Barbara Harris's important "Women and Politics in Early Tudor England" (1990). Harris argued that political historians of the Tudor era have traditionally focused on the institutions of the monarchy, parliament, and the courts, the world of high politics "that really counted" and that was, for the most part, male.

This collection of essays examines women's involvement in politics in early modern England, as writers, as members of kinship and patronage networks, and as petitioners, intermediaries and patrons. It challenges conventional conceptualizations of female power and influence, defining 'politics' broadly in order to incorporate women excluded from formal, male-dominated state institutions. The chapters embrace a range of interdisciplinary approaches: historical, literary, palaeographic, linguistic and gender based. They deal with a variety of issues related to female intervention within political spheres, including women's rhetorical, persuasive and communicative skills; the production by women of a range of texts that can be termed 'political'; the politicization of marital, family and kinship networks; and female involvement in patronage and court politics. Women and Politics in Early Modern England, 1450-700 also looks at ways in which images of female power and authority were represented within canonical texts, such as Shakespeare's plays and Milton's epic poetry. The volume extends the range of areas and texts for the study of women, gender and politics, and locates women's political, social and cultural activities within the contexts of the family, locality and wider national stage. It argues for a blurring of the boundaries between the traditional categories of the 'public' and the 'private,' the 'domestic' and the 'political'; and enhances our understanding of the ways in which women exerted political force through informal, intimate and personal, as well as more official, and formal channels of power. As a whole the book makes an important contribution to the reassessment of early modern politics from the perspective of women.
