England's Troubles: Seventeenth-Century English Political Instability in European Context

Synopsis

Seventeenth-century English history is known best for "the English Civil War" and "the English Revolution." This highly original and wide-ranging study analyzes and explains both of these major historical events, and others, by setting them in their wider contexts in relation to political instability across the century; in relation to the history of religions and political ideas; and in relation to contemporary European events.
