The Bloodless Revolution



The Glorious Revolution of 1688 represented a crucial turning point in modern British history by decisively shifting political power from the monarchy to Parliament In this cogent study, first published in 1972, Stuart Prall offers a well balanced account of the Revolution, its roots, and its consequences The events of 1688, Prall argues, cannot be viewed in isolation Examining the tempestuous half century that preceded and precipitated William and Mary s accession, he provides a comprehensive overview of the Revolution s context and of its historical meaning Prall insists that the Revolution of 1688 was the culmination of a long crisis begun back in 1640, and the revolution settlement was the resolution of problems which the Puritan Revolution and the Restoration had left unsolved This is an admirable combination of analysis, commentary upon views of historians, and chronological narrative, starting with the Restoration in 1660 and continuing through the Act of Settlement in 1701 Choice Free Read [ The Bloodless Revolution ] Author [ Stuart E.
