The Debate on the English Revolution PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Debate on the English Revolution free pdf "The debate on the English Revolution" is firmly established as an essential guide to the literature in its field and appears in a much revised third edition. New chapters are included on 20th century historians' treatments of social complexities, politics, political culture and revisionism, and on the Revolution's unstoppable reverberations. All the other chapters have been amended and recast to take account of recent publications. The book provides a searching re-examination of why the English Revolution remains such a provocatively controversial subject and analyses the different ways in which historians over the last three centuries have tried to explain its causes, course and consequences. Claredon, Hume, Macaulay, Gardiner, Tawney, Hill, and the present-day revisionists are given extended treatment, while discussion of the work of numerous other historians is integrated into a coherent, informative readable survey.
