Product Details


“Intensely interesting … Essential.”
—Perez Zagorin, Journal of Modern History

“The commanding interpreter of seventeenth-century England … No historian of recent times was so synonymous with his period of study; he is the reason why most of us know anything about the seventeenth century at all.”

“The dean and paragon of English historians.”
—E.P. Thompson, author of The Making of the English Working Class

“He established the concept of an ‘English Revolution’ every bit as significant and potentially as radical as its French and Russian equivalents … Wide-ranging, popular and immensely prolific … the dominant figure in studies of the period.”

“A book I argued with from beginning to end, and I was sometimes overborne by its arguments. It is also, in an old-fashioned phrase, a book of great learning. Both these observations constitute high praise.”
—John Morrill, History Today
