After more than two decades of unprecedented political, social, and religious upheaval, revolutionary thought and activity in Britain continued to thrive even after the restoration of the monarchy in 1660. This highly original study, which draws on the reports of both police and informers, follows the "radical underground" in England from the eve of the Restoration to the collapse of the northern rebellion in 1663. In a tale that winds its way across England and into Scotland, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, Greaves examines how radicals remained united in their common animosity to monarchy, prelacy, taxes, and popery. Although ultimately unsuccessful, their conspiracies and rebellions nonetheless fueled the drive for the repression of Nonconformists, prompted the state to cultivate an elaborate network of informers, and heightened the concern for domestic security.

About the Author:

Richard L. Greaves is at Florida State University.

Review:


"Displays massive research, and is written with a light and lucid touch...A valuable and important addition to the literature."--Albion


"An important book...[Greaves] has for the first time undertaken the laborious task of collecting all the evidence for the years 1660-3...The result is a quite new picture of the first three years of Charles II's reign...This is a most valuable work, which should make all students of the period do a lot of rethinking."--Christopher Hill, Labour/Le Travail


"A very wlecome modern account of a subject which has been almost entirely neglected since W.C. Abbot's work on it at the beginning of the century...Lucid and generally well documented."--EHR


"The first thorough account of the radical nonconformist underground in Britain during the years after the Stuart Restoration...A detailed and highly interesting account."--History: Reviews of New Books


"No historian has put all of these plots and revolts together in one single work...The scholarship is extremely sound and exhaustively researched and, like most things Professor Greaves writes, the book is written in a clear and crisp style."--Leo Solt, Indiana University at Bloomington
