Summary

England's Glorious Revolution is a sophisticated yet accessible examination of the precursors to the Revolution of 1688-89, the events of the revolution, and the profound political, social, and economic changes these events wrought. Steven Pincus's introduction thoroughly explains the context of the revolution, why these events were so stunning to contemporaries, and why, contrary to recent scholarly consensus, the revolution should be the considered the first modern revolution. This volume offers 40 documents from a wide array of sources and perspectives in eight topically organized sections that mirror the introduction's explanation. At the end of the documents section a case study comparing the writings of John Locke and Roger L'Estrange provides representative viewpoints from both sides of the revolution, and further contextualizes Locke's classic writings on government and religious toleration. Document headnotes, questions for consideration, a chronology, a selected bibliography, and an index provide further pedagogical support.
