Review quote

"Keep it in print! American students can read it. Still by far the best value for money . . ."--Professor Daniel A. Baugh, Cornell University"Written in a style of great clarity and persuasiveness, this little book presents the traditional Whig view at its best--the view of Locke, Burke, and Macaulay."--The Manchester Guardian"No one is better qualified to write of the revolution of 1689 than Professor Trevelyan. In the crisp, brisk narrative...one acknowledges the hand of a master historian."--Garrett Mattingly, Saturday Review of Literatureshow more

Back cover copy

G. M. Trevelyan's eminence among historians has received world-wide recognition, and the Bloodless Revolution is a subject within the period of English history to which he devoted many years of special study. His accomplishments both as an exact scholar and as a writer of exceptional ability have given this book a two-fold importance: it is a piece of literature as well as an outstanding contribution to historical inquiry.show more
