Summary and Info
Review"'An engaging read... this book will unquestionably become a major talking-point among all interested in Britain's last revolution.' (Ted Vallance, BBC History Magazine) 'Mr. Pincus's cogently argued account of what really happened during England's revolution destroys many comforting notions that have prevailed for more than 200 years... It leaves the reader with something much more exciting: a new understanding of the origins of the modern, liberal state.' (Economist) 'A magnificent, fully documented, very well written study of how the first thorough-going modern revolution was achieved with effort and against substantial obstacles over several years. Pincus overturns many received views: this book will raise fascinated interest in the late seventeenth century for many years to come, making it indispensable reading.'
