Synopsis

Oh the flags! Oh the fashions! But Cruickshanks (Institute of Historical Research) does not join in the glorification of the invasion of Britain by William of Orange in 1688 to seize the throne. She characterizes James II as a revolutionary who granted complete religious toleration as a moral right, and his opponents as opportunists who mounted an international coalition and gathered a huge army and navy. She pays considerable attention to Scotland and Ireland, where the impact of the Revolution was great and created problems that are still not resolved. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
