Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Stuart Age is widely recognised as the best general book on the period. Now in its fourth edition, it provides a definitive and up-to-date history of England's century of civil war and revolution.

Barry Coward addresses the major themes of the time, from the causes of the English Civil War and the nature of the English Revolution, to the aims and achievements of Oliver Cromwell, the continuation of religious passion in the politics of Restoration England, and the impact on Britain of the Glorious Revolution. The book also covers the relevant history of Scotland and Ireland, and gives comprehensive treatment of economic, social, intellectual, and political and religious history.

This fully revised edition includes the following features:

 - carefully selected illustrations integrated into the text

 - a new larger format

 - text boxes covering key ideas, events and figures

 - up-to-date introductions to the most important historiographical issues

The late Barry Coward was Emeritus Professor of the School of History, Classics and Archaeology at Birkbeck College, University of London. His many publications include Oliver Cromwell (2000) and A Companion to Stuart Britain (2008).

Previous edition reviews:

… the most comprehensive and up-to-date textbook on Stuart England

John Miller in The Times Higher Educational Supplement

… an intelligible, enjoyable and thorough survey of a period that has become so baffling to the newcomer

Blair Worden in The Journal of Ecclesiastical History

What an excellent book this is. The second edition provides without doubt the most up-to-date and most judicious overview of the seventeenth century we are likely to have for many years

Jeremy Gregory in History Today
