Unfortunately, the limited growth in human consciousness over thousands of years is reflected in the way we treat the planet and our fellow humans. Our parasitic attitude, should it continue, will destroy this beautiful Earth. Now is the time to influence governments, demanding an end to the power, greed and corruption so prevalent today. The lack of trust fuelling the rapid growth of the world's military is just lunacy, as we have learnt nothing despite our history of continual war. We are supposedly intelligent human beings and should be so much better than we have proven to be in the past, but our arrogance, self-indulgence and uncaring attitude continues.
This is an admirable combination of analysis, commentary upon views of historians, and chronological narrative, starting with the Restoration in 1660 and continuing through the Act of Settlement in 1701."--Choice

The Glorious Revolution of 1688 represented a crucial turning point in modern British history by decisively shifting political power from the monarchy to Parliament. In this cogent study, first published in 1972, Stuart Prall offers a well-balanced account of the Revolution, its roots, and its consequences. The events of 1688, Prall argues, cannot be viewed in isolation. Examining the tempestuous half-century that preceded and precipitated William and Mary's accession, he provides a comprehensive overview of the Revolution's context and of its historical meaning.--Publisher website.

Britain's Bloodless Revolutions explores the relationship of the emerging category of Literature to the emerging threat of popular violence between the Bloodless Revolution and the Romantic turn from revolution to reform. The book argues that at a time when the political nature of the Bloodless Revolution became a subject of debate - in the period defined by France's famously bloody revolution - 'Literature' emerged as a kind of political institution and constituted a bloodless revolution in its own right.
