George Macaulay Trevelyan (1876-1962) was a British historian who eschewed objectivity in favor of passionate engagement in his works, which reflected his personal commitment to Whig and Liberal principles (his great-uncle was the staunch Whig, Thomas Babington Macaulay). Among his best-known books are Garibaldi and the Making of Italy (1911), British History in the Nineteenth Century (1922), and An Autobiography and Other Essays (1949).

This 1914 volume covers the history of England between the years 1603 and 1714, tracing the Civil War, the Restoration, and the Glorious Revolution, and detailing how English traditions of liberty and representative democracy triumphed over the attempts of the Stuarts to establish a more absolutist monarchy. Trevelyan’s novel-esque style is captivating in this history.
