Book Description

28 Feb 1998 A History of the Modern British Isles
This is a survey of a seminal and intensely controversial period in British history, from the union of the Crowns of England and Scotland in 1603 to the union of the Kingdoms in 1707. The book explores the intersecting histories of the Stuart monarchies and considers how events in each nation were shaped by being part of a multiple kingdom as well as by their own internal dynamics. Throughout, special attention is given to the personalities and political style of successive rulers. Their role in precipitating two revolutions is examined against the background of longer term constitutional, religious and social themes. In particular, the parallels between James I and Charles II, and between Charles I and James II, are clearly drawn out.

Review

"Dr Nicholls has proved to be a resourceful choice ... he delivers an accurate, sensitive and engaging account, never allowing the reader to be lost in the quagmires of scholarly debate." The Historical Association

From the Publisher

Blackwell Publishers
A HISTORY OF THE MODERN BRITISH ISLES, 1603-1707 presents an analytical and interpretative account of the seminal and controversial period in British history, the union of the crowns of England and Scotland in 1603 to the union of the kingdoms in 1707. Its main focus is political and constitutional history, but social, economic, and cultural themes are also woven into the text. This survey explores the intersecting histories of the Stuart monarchies and considers how events in each nation were shaped both by being part of a multiple kingdom and by their own internal dynamics. Special attention is given to the personalities and political style of successive rulers and their role in precipitating two revolutions is examined against the background of long-term constitutional, religious and social themes. The book transcends the artificial divide of 1660 and highlights the patterns and continuities that unite the seventeenth century as a whole and assesses how these 104 years changed the face of Britain and its legacy for subsequent developments. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction 8 Aug 2013
By Adam Dodd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Clear as can be, accurate, synthetic, well-written--a fine introduction to the period, widened by its "British" as opposed to "English" context.
