The Fall of the British Monarchies, 1637-1642

£15.00

Product description

The history of the events which led to the collapse of Charles I's authority in England, Scotland, and Ireland in the 1640s. Conrad Russell links incidents in the king's three domains to construct a narrative account which makes sense of British history, as well as of the national story of each country. The Fall of the British Monarchies traces the important role of the Scots in dividing the English, and examines the Irish rebellion in its contemporary context. The Author argues that Charles Stuart was not the passive figure portrayed by so many historians, but an active protagonist in political events.

The book has obviously been read, the spine and cover have creases and there is some soilage to the closed edges of the pages. The pages are unmarked with the exception of page 144 where there is a suggestion that there is an error of date, a note on the inside back cover page and a note on the inside of the back cover. The binding is sound.
