The debate on the English Revolution is firmly established as an essential guide to the literature in its field and appears here in a much revised third edition. Three new chapters are included on twentieth-century historians' treatments of social complexities, politics, political culture and revisionism, and on the Revolution's unstoppable reverberations. All the other chapters have been amended and recast to take account of recent publications. The book provides a searching re-examination of why the English Revolution remains such a provocatively controversial subject and analyses the different ways in which historians over the last three centuries have tried to explain its causes, course and consequences. Claredon, Hume, Macaulay, Gardiner, Tawney, Hill, and the present-day revisionists are given extended treatment, while discussion of the work of numerous other historians is integrated into a coherent, informative readable survey.

MEDIA REVIEWS
" Dr. Richardson succeeds admirably in his attempt both to explain why the English Revolution remains so controversial a subject and to examine how and why historians have approached the subject over the past centuries." -- "Times Educational Supplement"
" ... an essential 'vademecum' for aficonadoes of the civil wars and interregnum, a motley crew, to be sure, but one united in fascination for those hurling times." -- "Literature and History"
