First published in 1983, John Miller's Glorious Revolution established itself as the standard introduction to the subject. It examines the dramatic events themselves and demonstrates the profound impact the Revolution had on subsequent British history. The Second Edition contains a fuller discussion of Scotland and Ireland, the growth of a fiscal-military state and the role of religion and the Revolution.
Barry Coward has revised his wide-ranging text which outlines the major social changes that occurred in England in the two hundred years after the Reformation. He examines the religious and intellectual changes resulting from revolutionary pressures, as well as considering the impact of rapid inflation and population expansion in the later sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Overall he stresses that social change combined with social continuity to produce a distinctive early modern English society.
Examines England's Glorious Revolution of 1688-1689 through a broad geographical and chronological framework, discussing its repercussions at home and abroad and why the subsequent ideological break with the past makes it the first modern revolution.
This book is the first full-length study of the development of Irish political print culture from the Glorious Revolution of 1688-9 to the advent of the Hanoverian succession in 1714. Based on extensive analysis of publications produced in Ireland during the period, including newspapers, sermons and pamphlet literature, this book demonstrates that print played a significant role in contributing to escalating tensions between tory and whig partisans in Ireland during this period. Indeed, by the end of Queen Anne’s reign the public were, for the first time in an Irish context, called upon in printed publications to make judgements about the behaviour of politicians and political parties and express their opinion in this regard at the polls. These new developments laid the groundwork for further expansion of the Irish press over the decades that followed.
England’s Glorious Revolution is a sophisticated yet accessible examination of the precursors to the Revolution of 1688-89, the events of the revolution, and the profound political, social, and economic changes these events wrought. Steven Pincus’s introduction thoroughly explains the context of the revolution, why these events were so stunning to contemporaries, and why, contrary to recent scholarly consensus, the revolution should be the considered the first modern revolution. This volume offers 40 documents from a wide array of sources and perspectives in eight topically organized sections that mirror the introduction’s explanation. At the end of the documents section a case study comparing the writings of John Locke and Roger L’Estrange provides representative viewpoints from both sides of the revolution, and further contextualizes Locke’s classic writings on government and religious toleration. Document headnotes, questions for consideration, a chronology, a selected bibliography, and an index provide further pedagogical support.
A study of popular responses to the English Reformation after Henry VIII's break from Rome.
