Front Cover
Longman, 1991 - History - 127 pages
The financial revolution marked the end of medieval England, and through the major institutions such as Lloyds and the Bank of England, laid the foundations on which England's emergence as a world power was based. The subsequent changes radically altered English politics, and this book aims to provide a concise guide to them. The series provides analysis of complex issues and problems in important A level Modern History topics. Using supporting documents, the books aim to give students a clear account of historical facts and an understanding of the central themes and differing interpretations. It is aimed at A level, first year university students and those at polytechnics and colleges of higher education. It should also be of interest to the general public who have an interest in British history.
