Overview

Praise for the series: 'Perhaps the most important historical undertaking of our age... one of the most valuable historical works ever produced.' Times Literary Supplement 'A landmark in the field of historical endeavour... the most admirable collection of sources on English history that exists.' American Historical Review English Historical Documents is the most ambitious and comprehensive collection of primary documents on English history ever published. The volumes were published between 1953 and 1977 and have become landmark publications in their own fields. This long awaited volume covers 1603-1660, the tumultuous years of the Stuart Kings, the English Civil War and the rise and fall of the Republic. The volume includes informative introductory pieces for the parts and sections, and editorial comments are directed towards making sources intelligible rather than drawing conclusions from them. Opening with an overview of the landscape, people and places of England and Wales, the volume covers all the key aspects of the Stuart period, including:
• Parliaments
• Religion
• Multiple Kingdoms
• Finance
• Political ideas
• The Monarchy
• Internal Wars and Warfare
• Foreign Policy and External Wars
• Justice and Judicial Affairs
• Links between localities and centres The format of the series has been fully updated for this new volume, and the documents gathered here encompass the most up to date approaches to the material.
