History of England, Vol. II

History of England, Vol. II Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Hume's great, enduring reputation in philosophy tends to obscure the fact that, among his contemporaries, his History of England was a more successful work.

The History covers almost 1,800 years. Hume saw English history as an evolution from a government of will to a government of law. Advanced in Hume's masterly prose, this argument continues to make the History a valuable study for the modern reader.

This Liberty Fund edition is based on the edition of 1778, the last to contain corrections by Hume. The typography has been modernized for ease of reading. Hume's own index to the entire work may be found at the conclusion of volume VI.

Synopsis:

Volume II covers the tumultous period from Henry III through Edward V and Richard III, including the War of the Roses, the struggle between the Houses of York and of Lancaster for the throne.
