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

178 editions published between 1956 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 2,915 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
The world turned upside down; radical ideas during the English Revolution by Christopher Hill( Book )

84 editions published between 1972 and 1991 in English and held by 2,421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the English revolution of the mid-seventeenth century which resulted in the triumph of the protestant ethic—the ideology of the propertied class—there threatened another, quite different, revolution. Its success “might have established communal property, a far wider democracy in political and legal institutions, might have disestablished the state church and rejected the protestant ethic.”In The World Turned Upside Down Christopher Hill studies the beliefs of such radical groups as the Diggers, the Ranters, the Levellers, and others, and the social and emotional impulses that gave rise to them. The relations between rich and poor classes, the part played by wandering “master-less” men, the outbursts of sexual freedom and deliberate blasphemy, the great imaginative creations of Milton and Bunyan—these and many other elements build up into a marvelously detailed and coherent portrait of this strange, sudden effusion of revolutionary beliefs. It is a portrait not of the bourgeois revolution that actually took place but of the impulse towards a far more fundamental overturning of society

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

27 editions published between 1984 and 2017 in English and held by 991 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
