At every level in historical studies it is becoming more appropriate to study main movements, developments towards freedom of thought, life, literature, and economics, rather than a purely political history. While the main political events in this book are by no means neglected, Mr Reed Brett has considered how these have come into the general corpus of developments and enlightenment right up to modern times. In other words, this book is in no sense conceived as strictly limited to the period 1603-1714. It has been conceived as part of a scheme in which it is hoped eventually to cover the whole era of British history at this stage. Third impression. 452pp. Index. Bibliography. Size: 8vo Large Post (8¼" x 5") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
