Overview

During the seventeenth century, the British Isles were trapped in a 23 year-long state of turmoil through civil war, continued rebellion, and revolutions. King Charles I wanted to instill a new uniform religious policy throughout the British Isles, and this caused a massive uproar over the King's policies toward the diverse people in his empire-the English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh. No person remained unaffected in the kingdom and eventually King Charles I was executed and the entire system of monarchy tumbled into a short-lived republic. Eventually the monarchy was restored under King Charles II, but the history of the British Isle in the seventeenth century remains forever marked by its tumultuous nature. Through a concise historical chronology and comprehensive overview, users of the Historical Dictionary of the British and Irish Civil Wars will find an insightful explanation of the people, places, and events that indelibly shape the United Kingdom's seventeenth-century history. The cross-listed dictionary entries offer a complete explanation of each important aspect of the Civil Wars and their effect on the Kingdom. Also includes maps and a bibliography.

This book is a splendidly comprehensive guide to the wars that engulfed all the nations ruled by Charles I, and to the Interregnum and further conflicts which followed. Bennett's bibliography and the chronology are comprehensive and well organized...the book is in general handsomely produced.

King Charles I only wanted everyone to be on the same page, in the same prayer book. Unfortunately, his realm included a wide variety of people<-->English, Irish, Scots, and Welsh<-->who were not anxious to give up their own ways. Bennett, who has written widely on the event, provides a chronology and reference to the resulting 23-year war that toppled the entire monarchy for a generation. He includes considerable information on the religious and social movements of the period as well as the political and military aspects. The lack of an index is mitigated by the extensive cross-referencing. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
