I appreciate Braddick's careful theorizing and synthesis. I've taken away a lot of helpful information and my understanding of state formation is much more accurate than it was before reading this book. But it's an infuriating read. It's like 5 books in one and the passive voice (necessary here considering the agent-less action that Braddick is describing) is very annoying. It's certainly not an easy read but this book is important to Early Modern English historiography.
