'Shot through with brilliance and an extraordinarily powerful historical intelligence.' John Morrill, University of Cambridge 'Breathtaking in its scope, magisterial in its thesis, and intellectually provocative, the work will spark widespread discussion for a very long time to come.' Richard L. Greaves, Florida State University 'We have had no interpretative synthesis as original or as comprehensive since Hill's Century of Revolution. The elegance, coherence and sweep of the approach deserve to make this book a focus of discussion for all early modernists.' Glenn Burgess, University of Hull '... full of acute criticisms, new emphases, apt and fresh quotations ... as a myriad of particular insights and revisions, Scott offers a stimulating panorama of the whole seventeenth century, the first large-scale explanatory analysis that takes as beyond the attenuated and sterile debates over revisionism.' Kevin Sharpe, History Today 'A work of unsurpassed imagination, unrelenting originality and unabashed boldness ... It is brimming with originality and stuffed with insights that make it the most stimulating book on seventeenth-century history to have appeared in years, if not decades.' Times Literary Supplement 'This is a work of enormous intellectual ambition ... The work certainly crackles with illuminating ideas and insights in detail ... Jonathan Scott has produced a stimulating work, often brilliant in detail and argued powerfully.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History ' ... a complex, striking reading of seventeenth-century English political development which evokes vigorous disagreement and admiration in equal measure.' Parliamentary History ' ... a provocative and very valuable book, which tackles a large subject and sets the complicated history of Britain and Europe in the seventeenth century in a fresh and clear framework. ... England's Troubles should stimulate readers to reexamine the challenges presented to them by events in their own times and by the institutions that the past has bequeathed to them.' Royal Stuart Review
