This cultural history challenges the standard depiction of the 1660s as the beginning of a new age of stability, demonstrating that the decade following the Restoration was just as complex and exciting as the revolutionary years that preceded it.

From the Back Cover:

The restoration of the monarchy in 1660 and the return of CharlesII to his throne have often been depicted as a watershed in Englishhistory, inaugurating a period of stability following the upheavalsand radicalism of the Civil War, the Republic and the Protectorateof Oliver Cromwell. N. H. Keeble's study challenges thisportrayal of events, arguing that the Restoration was in facttentative and insecure, unsure either of its popular support or itsfuture.

Keeble's cultural history of the 1660s offers a multi-facetedand dynamic model of the decade. Drawing extensively oncontemporary accounts, the author reveals that for those who livedthrough them, the events of 1660 carried no sense of finality orassurance of a new age. By representing the voices of the time, hisaccount restores contingency, instability and insecurity to theRestoration and demonstrates that the 1660s were no less complex orexciting than the revolutionary years that preceded them.
