9780140264654: Restoration: Charles II and His Kingdoms, 1660-1685

The late 17th century was a period of extraordinary turbulence and political violence in Britain, the like of which has never been seen since. Beginning with the Restoration of the monarchy after the Civil War, this book traces the fate of the monarchy from Charles II's triumphant accession in 1660 to the growing discontent of the 1680s. Harris looks beyond the popular image of Restoration England reveling in its freedom from the austerity of Puritan rule under a merry monarch and reconstructs the human tragedy of Restoration politics where people were brutalized, hounded, and exploited by a regime that was desperately insecure after two decade of civil war and republican rule.
