Preview the book

Please note that, while Pain, Pleasure and Perversity: Discourses of Suffering in Seventeenth-Century England is not actually published until Monday, April 28, you can read the introduction, the contents and the index to the book free in PDF form. Download and…well, enjoy may not be quite the right word, perhaps, but I hope you will find it interesting and informative and give you a taste for the main course to come!
