A Freeborn People: Politics and the Nation in Seventeenth-Century England.

By David Underdown .

Oxford, UK Oxford University: The Clarendon Press, 1996. Hardcover First Edition; First Printing indicated. Near Fine in Very Near Fine DJ: Both book and DJ show only minute indications of use. The Book shows the former owner's signature at the front and rear pastedown endpapers (under the DJ's flap; the binding shows slight lean, but remains perfectly secure; the text is clean. Theh DJ shows only the mildest rubbing; unclipped; mylar-protected. Overall, very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 174pp. First Edition; First Printing indicated. Hardback with DJ. Written by one of the world's most distinguished historians of early modern history, A Freeborn People is a provocative exploration of the ways in which the political cultures of the elite and of the common people intersected during the seventeenth century. David Underdown shows that the two worlds were not as separate as historians have often thought them to be; English men and women of all social levels had similar expectations about good government and about the traditional liberties available to them under the "Ancient Constitution". Throughout the century, both levels of politics were also powerfully influenced by prevailing assumptions about gender roles, and, especially in the years before the civil wars, by fears that the country was threatened by evil forces of satanic inversion. This dramatic reinterpretation of the Stuart period, based on the author's acclaimed 1992 Ford Lectures, begins a new chapter in the continuing debate over the historical meaning of Britain's seventeenth-century revolutions.

Empire: The British Imperial Experience From 1765 To The Present.

By Denis Judd.

New York, NY HarperCollins: Basic Books, 1997. Hardcover First Edition USA, First Printing indicated. First Edition USA, First Printing indicated. Near Fine in Near Fine DJ: Both book and DJ show only minute indications of use. The book shows just a hint of shelving wear along the bottom edge; the former owner's name is neatly inscribed at the upper front free endpaper; the binding is square and secure; the text is clean.The DJ shows mild rubbing and faint soiling to the white background field of the rear panel; the price is unclipped; mylar-protected. Overall, very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 518pp. This title was first published in Great Britain, by HarperCollins in 1996. Hardback with DJ. Dennis Judd's book on the history of the British Empire is not a day by day approach to empire but a focus on the most important events that shaped that empire. Things such as the India uprising in 1857 or the work of Cecil Rhodes are the main focus. The stories that are chosen do an excellent job of showing how the empire developed and the path it took to formation. This really is the best single volume work on the British Empire in terms of a pure history. The book covers all parts of the empire and has interesting vignettes such as the formation of the boy scouts. It also covers some of the major internal domestic squabbles within Great Britain as they relate to empire. I found that the discussions on how world war 1 and 2 affected the empire were very accurate and to the point. The reader can get a very good sense of how the British were drained of resources by the wars and see the effect this had on empire. As nationalistic movements took root in the various countries the British found it more difficult to control. Particularly with the end of Lend Lease by Truman the British were forced to grant independence to their colonies. The last few chapters focus on the remaining parts of the empire and how they fit into the commonwealth including the struggle with the Falkland Islands. If the reader wants a much more detailed account of the empire try to the Oxford history five volume British Empire. Judd's account is very readable and well done for those wanting a review of the salient points in the Empire's history.
