Overview

The aim of this book is to set the Glorious Revolution in its religious, political and diplomatic background and examine its consequences for Britain and Europe. Cruickshanks discusses the problems of the reign of James II that led to the invasion of William of Orange in November 1688. The book summarises and interprets the best in the many collections of essays published for the Tercentenary of the Glorious Revolution, as well as works published since. The Whig interpretation of history, the impact of the Revolution on Scotland and Ireland, and conventional wisdom on the constitutional settlement and the Financial Revolution are all reviewed in a new light.
