The Glorious Revolution of 1688-91 was a fundamental watershed in the constitutional history of England; but the Revolution also extended to, and had a major impact on, Scotland, Ireland and North America, and had wide-ranging ramifications throughout Europe and especially in the Dutch Republic, which at the time was the world's leading commercial and financial power. This is the first book to set the Glorious Revolution in its full British, European and American context, and to show how our picture of the English Revolution, as well as of the revolutionary process of 1688-91, is now being transformed.
