This is a sophisticated yet accessible examination of the precursors to the Revolution of 1688-89, the events of the revolution, and the profound political, social, and economic changes these events wrought. Steven Pincus's introduction thoroughly explains the context of the revolution, why these events were so stunning to contemporaries, and why, contrary to recent scholarly consensus, the revolution should be considered the first modern revolution.
