Psychology Press, 2002 - History - 546 pages

An undisputed classic, England Under the Stuarts is an account of England in the years between 1603 and 1714, charting England's progress from a 'great nation' to a 'great empire'.

G. M. Trevelyan's masterful narrative explores the major events of this period, which witnessed the upheavals of Civil War, the Restoration and the Glorious Revolution. While never neglecting to examine the conditions of English life, this celebrated historian highlights the liberty and toleration that emerged during these years.

Almost a century after its first publication, and now with a new introduction by John Morrill, Trevelyan's thorough survey of the Stuart age remains certain to inform and delight anybody with an interest in this period of English history.
