From the Back Cover:

This book provides a fresh perspective on one of the most complexand turbulent periods in the history of the British Isles. Settingthe experience of Wales, Scotland and Ireland alongside England,the author examines the interplay of politics, societies andculture both within and between each of the four nations involvedin the political struggles of the mid-seventeenth century.

Coverage of regional histories is complemented by a fullanalysis of local, social histories, highlighting the effects ofthe wars on urban and rural communities throughout Britain. Thebook examines the organizations and personnel of local governmentduring the wars, and looks at how financial and military pressuresaffected individuals and changed the pattern of daily life. Yetjust as decisions at Westminster forced change upon the variouscommunities of the four nations, so the actions and reactions ofthe local people provoked responses in central government. Byexamining the interactions of the "high" politics of King andParliament and the "low" politics of local societies, the bookoffers a distinctive and new overview of the period.

Throughout his analysis, the author sets existing historieswithin their particular historiographical framework, introducingthe reader to the themes and issues that have dominatedinterpretations of rebellion and revolution in the past. He alsodraws extensively from primary sources to bring individuals'experience to discussion of the period, including the accounts oflocal officials such as constables, churchwardens and Overseers ofthe Poor. The book contains a full chronology of events, acomprehensive guide to primary and secondary sources, as well asnumerous maps and illustrations. It will be welcomed by studentsand general readers alike as the ideal, comprehensive introductionto the events and analyses of this crucial period in Britishhistory.
