The Court and The Country; The Beginning of the English Revolution
The Court and The Country The Beginning of the English Revolution Author:Perez Zagorin "This is an ambitious and important book. Zagorin is not afraid to tackle a big subject and offer his own interpretation of the origins of the Puritan Revolution. The interpretation is multi-causal, not doctrinaire. Zagorin is too conscious of the complexity of the historical process to imprison himself in a theoretical framework, whether Whi... more »g, Marixist, or otherwise. His orgainizing principle is stated in the title: exploration of the Court-Country antithesis already made familiar by the work of Trevor-Roper and others. His book combines sophisticated analysis with skillful, tightly controlled narrative, distilled from his reading of some of the most important recent monographs and from an impressively wide-ranging grasp of the original sources."
