    It does what it says on the tin, though for Stuart Britain , read the Civil War It did help me get a handle on the basics of the politics at the time Irish secondary school history mostly deals with this period from the perspective of That Cromwell, what a bastard , which I can t necessarily disagree with , but less so when it came to the people who inhabited Stuart Britain For something published in 2000, this still hews very much to the Great Man school of history emphasis on the male, for women show up hardly at all.

    I m not really a non fiction kinda gal tbh Also I already know a lot of what was covered as I studied it during my AS course for History Which is actually why I bought this book and started reading it 2 years ago I think I need to stop stop reading things and then stopping reading them Basically I just need to commit.

    A winderful little book, distilling a career in the seventeenth century into so fe wpages Most sentences wrap up decades of study in straightfoward summary or opinion A great introduction.

    With the past couple books, they make a good intro for a fast and short History of Britain.Starting from the Roman era to the Anglo Saxon, The Medieval, the Tudors and now Stuart Britain and I am going to move on to 18th, 19th and 20th century in the next couple.As in the previous books it is short and pass through most of the important events of the time, with short account of the state of the nation during the period.We see the rise and fall of Charles I, the civil wars, the Cromwell period and the comeback of the monarchy It is a good read.

    A great short look into the basics of the reign of the Stuart dynasty in Great Britain This starts with the reign of James I, goes through the end of the reign with Queen Anne The author also includes chapters on The Civil War that took place, though he divides it into two separate wars He also has a chapter on the interregnum period when Cromwell was in charge This was not a dynasty that I had known much about prior to reading this book so I learned quite a bit and plan on looking for some of the books mentioned in the bibliography for further reading.

    Most books in this series run to 150 pages This book barely hit 90 This led to a wholly unsatisfactory treatment of an extremely interesting period in English if not world history How can you write a book on this period and not mention the literary heavyweights active at the time Urgh, a good book if you ve never heard of the period, but almost useless otherwise There is some good information on the economy and culture in there though.

    Not quite long enough to do justice to what may be the most important period in British history, the author nevertheless gives it a good say for itself Interestingly, he attributes the rise of religious individualism, and later secularism, to the aftermath of the Civil War, which I m not sure is entirely justified, but never mind He rightly notes that it did give rise to the Whig Tory divide that would define politics for the next couple of centuries.

    A good short digest of a fairly tumultuous period in history Handy if you want a quick overview of the 17th C Unsurprisingly it focuses on the Stuarts and the Civil war but also briefly covers the social history of the period.
