9780199228171: The History of the Rebellion: A New Selection (Oxford World's Classics)

Here is the only affordable selection of Clarendon's classic History of the Rebellion currently in print, and the first popular edition since 1953. Written by one of the closest advisers to Charles I and Charles II, Clarendon's History contains a remarkably frank account of the inadequacies of royalist policy-making as well as an astute analysis of the principles and practice of government. Clarendon chronicles in absorbing detail the factions and intrigues, the rise of Cromwell and the death of Charles I, the bloody battles and the eventual Restoration of the monarchy in 1660 after the Interregnum. Paul Seaward's new selection includes all the famous passages but also provides a readable narrative account of the Civil War and links Clarendon's personal story to the greater struggle going on around him. A substantial introduction sets Clarendon's achievement in its political and literary context; a glossary of main characters and index further enhances the volume's usefulness.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

I am doing your Majesty some service here, whilst I am preparing the story of your sufferings; that posterity may know by whose default the nation was even overwhelmed with calamities, and by whose virtue it was redeemed. Clarendon s massive History has since its first publication in 1702-4 dominated our images of the English Civil War.
