It considers diplomatic, military, political, religious, intellectual, and social developments. It covers Ireland and Scotland as well as England and Wales, and treats issues at a provincial level as thoroughly as those upon the national scene. Repeatedly, the author provides his own provocative solutions to questions as well as presenting the work of his colleagues. Thus, it is both a collective and a personal portrait of an age. It ought to meet the needs of students at all levels, as well as entertaining the general reader.
