    DescriptionThe political upheaval of the mid-seventeenth century has no parallel in English history. Other events have changed the occupancy and the powers of the throne, but the conflict of 1640-60 was more dramatic: the monarchy and the House of Lords were abolished, to be replaced by a republic and military rule. In this wonderfully readable account, Blair Worden explores the events of this period and their origins - the war between King and Parliament, the execution of Charles I, Cromwell's rule and the Restoration - while aiming to reveal something more elusive: the motivations of contemporaries on both sides and the concerns of later generations.

    Review quote
    If you want to be informed about that unfortunate period of English history, Blair Worden's crisp 160-pager may well be the best place to start. -- Nicholas Bagnall SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
