Description 1 online resource (viii, 214 pages) : illustrations, maps
Contents Setting the stage : finding a place in early modern London -- "No better than conduit pipes" : occupational practice and the creation of difference -- "English-born reputed strangers" : birth and descent in theory and practice -- Jewish immigration in an anti-stranger context -- The Islamic world, captivity and difference
Summary Making Differences investigates multiculturalism in London during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, as well as developing notions of Englishness. Rather than relying upon literary or theatrical representations, the study emphasizes day-to-day practice, drawing upon petitions, government records, guild minute books and economic and taxation disputes, offering a new perspective that will be of interest both to scholars of the early modern English metropolis and to historians of race, migration, imperialism and the wider Atlantic world
