For two hundred years historians have viewed England's Glorious Revolution of 1688-1689 as an un-revolutionary revolution - bloodless, consensual, aristocratic, and above all, sensible. This book refutes this traditional view.

Review:

`Steve Pincus's book [is] a work of spectacular ambition and astonishingly wide learning ... dense yet lucid and vigorous.' --Blair Worden, Literary Review, October 2009

`Mr Pincus explodes in succession each of the myths about the Glorious Revolution ... [a] cogently argued account.' --Economist, 17th October 2009

'...compelling and forcefully argued... It is a book that will prompt intense historical debate for many years to come.' --Ted Vallance, New Statesman, 26th October 2009

`In 1688 ... [Pincus] has written a swashbuckling book ... As fearless iconoclasm, 1688 can hardly be bettered.'
--David Scott, Standpoint, 1st November 2009

`An engaging read...this book will unquestionably become a major talking-point among all interested in Britain's last revolution.'
--Ted Vallance, BBC History Magazine, 1st December 2009

`Pincus's marvellously learned book is the product of years of industrious archival labour.'
--Jonathan Clark, Times Literary Supplement, 15th January 2010

`...one of the most ambitious works of history to appear in recent years... The book is a marvel of scholarship.'
--Matthew Price, The National, 25th December 2009

`A book that will be difficult for any student of the 17th century or of the revolutions to ignore.' --Mark Knights, Reviews in History, April 2010

`No historian of the Glorious Revolution - or the regime it established - will be able to overlook this remarkable work.'
--William Gibson, Archives, April 2010
