For two hundred years historians have viewed England's Glorious Revolution of 1688-1689 as an un-revolutionary revolution - bloodless, consensual, aristocratic, and above all, sensible. This title refutes this traditional view. It demonstrates that England's revolution was a European event, that it took place over a number of years, not months.
