The Causes of the English Revolution, 1529-1642
Psychology Press, 2002 - 185 ページ
From the Publisher: Dividing the nation and causing massive political change, the English Civil War remains one of the most decisive and dramatic conflicts of English history. The Causes of the English Revolution examines the factors leading up to the deposition of Charles I in 1642 and analyses the crisis of confidence at the root of his demise. In this seminal work, Lawrence Stone explores theories of revolution and traces the social and economic change that led to this period of instability. Now with a new introduction by John Brewer (author of The Pleasures of the Imagination), this classic text is essential reading for all those fascinated by the fraught battle for power between Charles I and Cromwell.
