Description

In five paperback volumes, "The Oxford History of Britain" tells the story of Britain and her peoples over 2000 years, from the coming of the Roman legions in 55 BC to the present day. This volume concentrates on Britain during the era of the Tudors and Stuarts. The Tudor age was marked by extreme pressure of population on economic resources, by religious conflict, and the threat of foreign invasion. The resultant political and religious tensions inherited by the house of Stuart are also analyzed: despite a marked decline in internal lawlessness, two civil wars, regicide, a republic, a restoration and a revolution followed each other in bewildering profusion.show more
