Review:

`Review from previous edition a very important contribution to the series'
Roger Hainsworth, The Adelaide Review

`Dr Hoppit explores fears and traumas incisively and expertly and makes it clearer than it perhaps has ever been made before why the positive developments prevailed and the worse fears ebbed away'
Roger Hainsworth, The Adelaide Review

`All students of this significant period will be in his debt for decades to come. Had it been put in my hands when I was studying this period as an undergraduate I would have gnawed on it like a famished wolf.'
Roger Hainsworth, The Adelaide Review

astute and intelligent.

`his exemplary book.'
Penelope J. Corfield, TLS

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Glorious Revolution was a decisive moment in England s history; an invading Dutch army forced James II to flee to France, and his son-in-law and daughter, William and Mary, were crowned as joint sovereigns. The wider consequences were no less startling: bloody war in Ireland, Union with Scotland, Jacobite intrigue, deep involvement in two European wars, Britain s emergence as a great power, a financial revolution, greater religious toleration, a riven church and a startling growth of parliamentary government. Such changes were only a part of the transformation of English society of the time. An enriching torrent of new ideas from the likes of Newton, Defoe, and Addison, spread through newspapers, periodicals, and coffee-houses, provided new views and values that some embraced and others loathed. England s horizions were also growing, especially in the Caribbean and American colonies, For many however, the benefits were uncertain: the slave trade flourished, inequality widened, and the poor and disorderly were increasingly subject to strictures and statutes. If it was an age of prospects it was also one of anxieties. Bookseller Inventory # AAW9780199251001
