A brilliant assessment of the civil war and its long-term consequences by a renowned historianThe political upheavals of the mid-17th century had no parallel in the history of EnglandOther events changed the rate of occupation and the powers of the throne, but the conflict of 1640-60 was more dramatic: the monarchy and the House of Lords were abolished and replaced by a republic and the military regime.In this wonderfully readable narrative, Blair Worden explores the events of this period and their origins – the war between the King and Parliament, the execution of Charles I, the Cromwell Rule and restoration – while seeking to reveal something more elusive: the motivations of contemporaries on both sides and the concerns of subsequent generations.
