Restoration and revolution in Britain : a political history of the era of Charles II and the glorious revolution
Part of the British studies series series
Gary De Krey examines the political history of England, Scotland and Ireland from the Interregnum through Britain's eighteenth-century rise to power.
De Krey analyses the political and religious issues that interrupted settlement in the Stuart kingdoms until after the Glorious Revolution.
The royalist political culture of the court and of the church establishments are investigated, as are parliamentary politics and the nonconformist ethos.
The narrative provides essential historical context for studying such figures as Bunyan, Dryden, Locke, and Marvell.
