An excellent collection, rich in detail, wide-ranging, thoroughly grounded in socio-economic history and the sources, and a fitting tribute to the life and abiding influence of Margaret Spufford. * ECCLESIOLOGY TODAY *
For those familiar with the scholarship of Margaret Spufford, Faith, Place and People in Early Modern England is a sublime paean commemorating her contributions to the field of social and economic history. This compilation of essays, many written by former students and colleagues of Spufford, not only displays the influence she had on those around her, but also demonstrates the ongoing impact she continues to exert in the study of early modern history. * H-NET *
The collection as a whole is well produced and nicely illustrated. The essays are interesting and of a consistently high academic quality. -- Jonathan Healey * Journal of British Studies *
