Britain in Revolution is the story of the upheavals in England, Scotland, and Ireland that broke the course of royal government for two decades and more. Austin Woolrych evokes the drama of the Civil Wars, the clashes of conviction and emotion that they engendered, their impact on the lives of the people, and the wealth of new ideas generated by the breakdown of the old order in church and state. He brilliantly interweaves the history of the three kingdoms and peoples, gripping the reader with the fast-paced yet always balanced story.
