Although historians have devoted much attention to the influence of Jacobitism on Parliamentary politics, none has hitherto attempted to explore its broader implications in English society. Paul Monod's acclaimed study, newly available in paperback, redresses this, and offers a wide-ranging analysis of every aspect of Jacobite activity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'In a brilliant book, covering much entirely new ground, Paul Monod surveys the importance of Jacobitism in English society from newspapers, poetry, songs, prints, medals, clubs, riots, seditious words cases and rebellion, all reflecting different types of commitment. On the one hand Jacobitism reflected a yearning for the values of the Restoration of 1660 and divine hereditary right as a guarantee of social order and stability and, on the other, it provided a radical critique of Whig government ... English society was pluralistic, not monolithic, and Monod's book is essential to an understanding of it.' Eveline Cruickshanks, Institute of Historical Research
'It is a subject that has cried out for a chronicler. Paul Kleber Monod has accepted the challenge with a success that will reward all who study the era.' Reed S. Browning, The American Historical Review
'Monod must have our gratitude for putting eighteenth-century Jacobitism in an intelligible and acceptable perspective.' Brain W. Hill, English Historical Review
"Paul Monod has now undertaken the task of analyzing and codifying all this revisionist material, adding to it the fruits of his own research in English local archives, which is extensive and deep, in an attempt to give a unified picture of Jacobitism up to the death of Charles Edward....Clearly this is an important book, which must engage the attention of any eighteenth-century historian." Journal of Modern History
"In a brilliant book, covering much entirely new ground, Paul Monod surveys the importance of Jacobitism in English life, concluding that it was considerable. It explores the broader implications of Jacobitism in English society from newspapers, poetry, songs, prints, medals, clubs, riots, seditious words cases and rebellion, all reflecting different types of committment...English society was pluralistic not monolithic, and Monod's book is essential to an understanding of it." Eveline Cruickshanks, Institute of Historical Research
"In recent years Jacobitism has emerged as a centrally important issue in the historiography of eighteenth-century England....It is a subject that has cried out for a chronicler. Paul Kleber Monod has accepted the challenge with a success that will reward all who study the era....admirable clarity and an enticing array of evidence." American Historical Review
"...excellent new study....Happily, Monod's book challenges the idea that the history of Jacobitism is unworthy of serious consideration....Perhaps the greatest strength of Monod's book is its liberation of eighteenth-century history from an essentialist view of Jacobitism, emphasizing instead its myriad ambiguities and contradictions, in particular the tension between adhering to an older cultural ideal of unity and simultaneously advocating toleration and reform." Steven Scherwatzky, Eighteenth-Century Life
"...certainly timely, a part of the revisionism in eighteenth-century historiography that is currently taking Jacobitism very seriously indeed....very useful for those of us working with the political and literary culture of the period...." John Richetti, Studies in English Literature
"...will surely become the standard work on the English movement. Highly recommended...." J.W. Weingart, Choice
"Monod is to be congratulated on broadening our understanding of the complicated psychology of English Jacobitism." Brian W. Hill, English Historical Review
