Overview

Gary De Krey examines the political history of England, Scotland, and Ireland from the Interregnum through Britain's eighteenth-century rise to power. De Krey analyses the political and religious issues that interrupted settlement in the Stuart kingdoms until after the Glorious Revolution. The royalist political culture of the court and of the church establishments are investigated, as are parliamentary politics and the nonconformist ethos. The narrative provides essential historical context for studying such figures as Bunyan, Dryden, Locke, and Marvell.
