9781403971548: England's Glorious Revolution: A Brief History with Documents (Bedford Cultural Editions Series)

England’s Glorious Revolution is a sophisticated yet accessible examination of the precursors to the Revolution of 1688-89, the events of the revolution, and the profound political, social, and economic changes these events wrought. Steven Pincus’s introduction thoroughly explains the context of the revolution, why these events were so stunning to contemporaries, and why, contrary to recent scholarly consensus, the revolution should be the considered the first modern revolution. This volume offers 40 documents from a wide array of sources and perspectives in eight topically organized sections that mirror the introduction’s explanation. At the end of the documents section a case study comparing the writings of John Locke and Roger L’Estrange provides representative viewpoints from both sides of the revolution, and further contextualizes Locke’s classic writings on government and religious toleration. Document headnotes, questions for consideration, a chronology, a selected bibliography, and an index provide further pedagogical support.

Review:

'This is a terrific collection. It succeeds in communicating the excitement of the Revolution of 1688, and just how much was at stake in this 'regime change'. It makes it possible to teach not only the Revolution of 1688 but also the entire late 17th century in a more compelling way. It also beautifully shows the connections between constitutional, economic, religious and foreign policy issues.' - Rachel Weil, Cornell University, USA 'This is an extremely impressive volume for undergraduate teaching, eminently useful both for its concise explanation of the importance of the Glorious Revolution and for its fascinating collection of documents. At the same time, it is also an important manifesto for a pioneering way of understanding the Glorious Revolution of 1688-89 that can be used to give students access to the very latest scholarship.' - Ethan Shagan, Northwestern University, USA
