The century of revolution, 1603-1714 by Christopher Hill( Book )

155 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 4,641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1961 Christopher Hill first published what has come to be acknowledged as the best concise history of the period, Century of Revolution. Stimulating, vivid and provocative, his graphic depiction of the turbulent era examines ordinary English men and women as well as kings and queens. Hill argued that the Civil War was driven by the conflict between the old feudal élites and the growing merchant classes. Society and the State are dissected alongside other aspects such as Protestantism and the rise of capitalism and the questioning of hitherto unassailable authorities such as the church and the law. Full of wit and insight, his treatment of what is regarded as one of England's most formative periods is one that is as truly satisfying in the second edition, as it was in 1961

Milton and the English Revolution by Christopher Hill( Book )

51 editions published between 1977 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this remarkable book Christopher Hill used the learning gathered in a lifetime's study of seventeenth-century England to carry out a major reassessment of Milton as man, politician, poet, and religious thinker. The result is a Milton very different from most popular representations: instead of a gloomy, sexless "Puritan", we have a dashingly thinker, branded with the contemporary reputation of a libertine."--

In 1530 England was a backward economy. Yet by 1780 she possessed a global empire and was on the verge of becoming the world’s first industrialized power. This book deals with the intervening 250 years, and explains how England acquired this unique position in history. Esteemed historian Christopher Hill recounts a story that begins with the break with Europe before hitting a tumultuous period of war and revolution, combined with a cultural and scientific flowering that made up the early modern period. It was in this era that Britain became home to imperial ambitions and economic innovation, prefiguring what was to come. Hill excavates the conditions and ideas that underpin this age of extraordinary change, and shows how, and why, Britain became the most powerful nation in the world

The experience of defeat : Milton and some contemporaries by Christopher Hill( Book )

34 editions published between 1984 and 2017 in English and held by 1,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What lessons can we learn from the defeat of the seventeenth century English revolution' The failure of the English Revolution in 1660 provoked a variety of responses among radical clergy, intellectuals and writers, as they struggled to accept and account for their defeat in the light of divine providence. Christopher Hill's close analysis of the writings of the Levellers and Diggers, of Fox and other important early Quakers suggests that the revolutionary beliefs and savage social judgments and disillusionments that Milton expressed in his writings at the time were shared by many of his contemporaries. Hill makes a provocative case, as well, that Milton's three great poems-Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained, and Samson Agonistes-came directly out of his painful reassessment of man and his society, and of society's relation to moral order.

"Everything Christopher Hill has to say about the literature or the politics of the seventeenth century is valuable. He spins off books for lesser scholars with every other sentence. In this collection of essays alone he has written the best essay I have read on censorship in the century, and the best on the religion and politics of Robinson Crusoe, and Samuel Pepys, and just about anyone else he chooses to write about."--Milton Quarterly
Liberty against the law : some seventeenth-century controversies by Christopher Hill( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2020 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'noble savage' dates from this period. With their rejection of the state church, religious dissenters also challenged the prevailing orthodoxy, and so the law of the state. This hero-worship of the 'outlaw' reflects vast social and economic changes. The lives of the peasantry were irrevocably altered, and Christopher Hill considers how they were affected by enclosures, the loss of many traditional rights and draconian punishments for minor transgressions. However
