"The Stuart age is a remarkable portrait of England, from 1603 to 1714, drawn from the letters, diaries, journals, and books of the people who lived during this bright and turbulent era. This was an age of great events at home - one king was deposed and another decapitated as England struggled to make the transition from medieval to modern state. Overseas, the age opened with the settling of the New World (Jamestown, honoring the first Stuart, in 1607) and it crescendoed triumphantly in the Old World with the Duke of Marlborough's victories, ending the war of the Spanish Succession. During these years, Charles II founded the Royal Society, Isaac Newton set the course of modern science, Oliver Cromwell established the New Model Army, John Donne preached, Daniel Defoe wrote, Izaak Walton angled, Henry Purcell composed, Nell Gwynn lived. The Stuart Age has chapters on royalty and on the common man; on life in the city and in the country; on manners, food, and dress; on sports, warfare, witchcraft, and religion. And much, much more - all in the words, not always impartial, of the people of the era. Here they are, as they saw themselves." - from back cover
