Pub. Date: 03/28/2001
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
An engaging range of period texts and theme books for AS and A Level history. The period from 1603 to 1660 is characterised by complex religious and political developments, and dramatic events such as the execution of Charles I, civil war and the introduction of a republican form of government. In this clearly argued account, Graham E. Seel identifies the main political, religious and economic factors that help explain the events of this turbulent period, and assesses the role of leading personalities such as James VI and I, Charles I, Buckingham and Cromwell. Regicide and republic includes the additional document study The Civil War, 1637-49.
