The Century of Revolution, 1603-1714
Annotation. There is an immense range of books about the English Civil War, but one historian stands head and shoulders above all others for the quality of his work on the subject. In 1961 Christopher Hill first published what has come to be acknowledged as the best concise history of the period, Century of Revolution. Stimulating, vivid and provocative, his graphic depiction of the turbulent era examines ordinary English men and women as well as kings and queens.

Hill is a master at making even remote history interesting. He does it partially by having a metahistorical story to tell, which may be a drawback to some, but the gains in readability make the book well worth the read no matter what your interpretive persuasion. Read full review
