The 1640s were one of the most exciting and bloody decades in British and Irish history. This book interweaves the narrative threads in each theatre of conflict to provide an holistic account and analysis of the wars in and between England, Scotland and Ireland, from the Covenanter Rebellion to the execution of Charles I. Politics and War in the Three Stuart Kingdoms, 1637-49 - stresses the need to examine the English Civil War within the context of the other conflicts in Scotland and Ireland, and vice versa - explores key themes, such as the relationship between armies and elites - assesses the extent to which the wars in and between the kingdoms were the product of religious and ethnic hatred Using a wide range of original and secondary sources, and incorporating the latest research, David Scott offers a challenging new interpretation of political structure and dynamics in the warring Stuart realms.

Eighteenth-century Britons were frequently anxious about the threat of invasion, military weakness, possible financial collapse and potential revolution. Anthony Page argues that between 1744 and 1815, Britain fought a 'Seventy Years War' with France. This invaluable study: - argues for a new periodization of eighteenth-century British history, and explains the politics and course of Anglo-French war - explores Britain's 'fiscal-naval' state and its role in the expansion of empire and industrial revolution - highlights links between war, Enlightenment and the evolution of modern British culture and politics. Synthesizing recent research on political, military, economic, social and cultural history, Page demonstrates how Anglo-French war influenced the revolutionary era and helped to shape the first age of global imperialism.

Population. It also counters the recent preoccupation with the 'low' politics of the localities by arguing that England was a remarkably unified state whose subjects were directly affected by, and therefore interested in, the 'high' politics of the court, council and parliament. The book reassesses the significance of the depositions of Edward II, Richard II and Henry VI and concludes with a discussion of the origins of the Wars of the Roses.

Edward Waverley stammt aus englischem Adel. Während sein Vater in London eine politische Karriere als Parteigänger der Whigs macht, damals die Unterstützer der Monarchen aus dem Haus Hannover, wird Waverley von seinem Onkel aufgezogen, der ihm die alten jakobitischen Werte vermittelt, also die der Anhänger des Hauses Stuart. Waverley ist im Laufe des Romans hin- und hergerissen zwischen widerstreitenden Loyalitäten: den Verpflichtungen als britischem Offizier und der Treue zu den kennengelernten Schotten und der Faszination an der traditionellen Kultur der schottischen Highlands. Waverley handelt dabei oft nicht selbst, sondern wird von den Ereignissen um ihn herum mitgerissen.
