Description:
New book, 372 pages. In the summer of 1688, seven English peers wrote to William of Orange requesting his assitance to overturn the pro-Catholic policies of their monarch, James II. On 5 November William landed with a massive invasion force and within six weeks James had fled the country, fearing for his safety. Three months later William and his English wife Mary, James II's Protestant daughter, were crowned joint monarchs, accepting the Declaration of Rights that affirmed Parliament's ancient rights and liberties. In his new, highly readable narrative of the period, acclaimed historian Edward Vallance counters the claim made by generations of Whig historians that this was a bloodless revolution - a victory for progress. Civil war was avoided by the narrowest of margins and the conflict was characterised instead by warfare and bloody massacre.
