dc.description.abstract Crown policy towards the nobles and the rule of the provinces under the early Tudors reflected the values and social structures of 'civil society' in lowland England. Using as a case-study the Dacres, a minor peerage family who were wardens of the Anglo-Scottish marches, this paper explores the strains and tensions which were created by the application of these norms to the 'peripheral¿ parts of the Tudor state. The paper outlines the political ambitions, resources, and estate-management policies of a border baron, and argues that Henry VIII's policies for the rule of the borders and his expectations of his officials there were unrealistic. It also suggests that the traditional approach of historians to the problems of Tudor politics and government reflects too much a view of events as seen from 'the centre' and needs to be balanced by a more sensitive treatment of the problems of the 'periphery '. en
