Overview


In less than a decade, the commonwealth of Oliver Cromwell was dramatically transformed into the very different realm of the Restoration monarchy. This is the first detailed account of this vital and eventful period, which witnessed the end of a republic, the reestablishment of royal government, naval wars, plague, religious persecution, and the destruction of the capital in the Great Fire. Drawing on a wealth of public and private manuscript sources to rework each issue anew, Hutton explores the way government policy was set and put into practice during these nine years and how national concerns, local issues, and various social, political, and religious groups all interacted to influence the shifting currents of the nation's affairs.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Ronald Hutton presents a narrative which reveals the stark political and religious realities of the age, researched in great depth and accompanied by thoughtful and provoking analysis."-- History Teaching Review

"A splendidly robust review of a complicated period. Attractive for students, because it offers them both a clear outline of events and a stimulating view of changing historical interpretations. A difficult art and a considerable achievement."--A.D.M. Pettegree, St. Andrews

"This unabridged edition will certainly be both stimulating and informative for its intended audience. This study is strongly recommended."--J.R. Jones, University of East Anglia, History & Archaeology Review

"A masterly survey of the complex nature of the Restoration settlements and of events to 1667, which is both narrative and an outline for further research...any students studying the Restoration for an "A" level special subject would find the book of enormous value."--Christopher W. Daniels, Teaching History

"Hutton's account of the complicated events leading to the Restoration is the best we have."--Observer
