Inhaltsangabe: The political upheaval of the mid-17th century has no parallel in English history. Other events have changed the occupancy and the powers of the throne, but the conflict of 1640 to 1660 was more dramatic: the monarchy and the House of Lords were abolished, to be replaced by a republic and military rule. In this wonderfully readable account, Patrick Little explores the events of this period and their origins — the war between King and Parliament, the execution of Charles I, Cromwell's rule and the Restoration — while aiming to reveal something more elusive: the motivations of contemporaries on both sides and the concerns of later generations.
