Description

There is an immense range of books about the English Civil War, but one historian stands head and shoulders above all others for the quality of his work on the subject. In 1961 Christopher Hill first published what has come to be acknowledged as the best concise history of the period, Century of Revolution. Stimulating, vivid and provocative, his graphic depiction of the turbulent era examines ordinary English men and women as well as kings and queens.

Reviews

'This is a book we have all been waiting for … it will be a long, long time before this brilliantly lucid and forcefully argued book is bettered.' - The Spectator
