Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The century between 1603 and 1714--an era of profound social, economic, and religious change--launched Britain from an isolated archipelago to a world-class intellectual, commercial, and military center. An outburst of intellectual creativity that surpassed even the Renaissance saw a language scarcely known beyond its native shores become immortalized for a future world.

Synopsis:

This sixth volume of the nine-volume work narrates the tempestuous political events of the Stuart dynasty. It charts the reigns of the six monarchs, and the course of two revolutions as well as religious upheavals that shook the beliefs of the 17th-century Britons to the core.
