Description
The political upheaval of the mid-17th century has no parallel in English history. The monarchy and the House of Lords were abolished, to be replaced by a republic and military rule. The Church of England was overthrown, the liberty of conscience established, and new ideas about politics, religion, and society were eloquently voiced. Blair Worden's wonderfully readable account explores the movements and events of this period—the war between King and Parliament, the rise of the New Model Army, the execution of Charles I, the rule of Oliver Cromwell, and the Restoration—while also revealing something more elusive: the motivations of contemporaries on both sides, and the concerns of later generations.

"By far the best short introduction to the period."—Times Literary Supplement

"An exemplary piece of popular history ... opening up perhaps the most important national story to the nation, passionately retold.... If you want to be informed about that unfortunate period of English history, Blair Worden's crisp 160-pager may well be the best place to start."—Sunday Telegraph (London)
