A monarchy transformed : Britain 1603-1714 by Mark A Kishlansky( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Monarchy Transformed narrates the tempestuous political events of the Stuart dynasty. Beginning with the accession of James I and concluding with the death of Queen Anne, it details the aspirations of subjects and sovereigns, the growth and decay of political institutions and the clashes of ideology and of arms that make seventeenth-century British history one of the most fascinating of epochs. Here can be found the story of the reigns of six monarchs, the course of two revolutions and of religious upheavals that shook the beliefs of seventeenth century Britons to the core
The rise of the new model Army by Mark A Kishlansky( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a meticulously-researched and highly controversial study of the origins and development of parliamentary and extra-parliamentary politics during the English Civil War. Professor Kishlansky challenges the fundamental assumptions upon which all previous interpretations of this period have been based. It is his contention that during the years 1643-6, Parliament operated on a model of consensus rather than on one of party conflict as has been traditionally assumed. The New Model Army was thus the product of compromise and, Professor Kishlansky argues, it embodied the ideology that created it. The political invention of the Army occurred only after the machine of consensus politics had broken down with Parliament. The New Model Army, perpetuating the belief in consensus and balance but also representing its own interests, then became one of many factions competing for dominance"--Publisher description
Parliamentary selection : social and political choice in early modern England by Mark A Kishlansky( Book )

17 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parliamentary Selection examines the process by which members of Parliament were chosen in the period between the reigns of Elizabeth I and William III. By focusing on the nature of the selection process, rather than on its results, Professor Kishlansky uncovers a fundamental transformation in assumptions about political behaviour in the early modern period. Until the time of the English Revolution, selection of members of Parliament was a social process dominated by concern about rank and status, personal honor, and community solidarity. County elites organized their selections to reflect the realities of their local social structures, accounting for the influence of the county peerage and greater gentry. Borough elites used local patrons, officeholders, and denizens for nominations to their places. In both county and borough the principle of parliamentary selection was non-competitive choice

Political culture and cultural politics in early modern England : essays presented to David Underdown( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining the work of major scholars on both sides of the Atlantic this volume seeks to explore the interconnections between popular culture and political activism at both the local and central levels. Strongly influenced by the work of David Underdown, the contributions range across a spectrum of social and political history from witchcraft to the aristocracy, from forest riots to battles of the civil war. The volume combines chapters from historians of gender, of political theory, of social structure, and of high politics. Within this diversity, the contributors offer a cohesive approach to the study of early modern England, encouraging the exploration of mentalities and political activities, as well as artistic rendering, writing and ceremony within the widest context of cultural politics

The unfinished legacy : a brief history of Western civilization by Mark A Kishlansky( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I would say that this is a very well written book-clear, engaging, and certain to be one that students would appreciate. For a brief text it is comprehensive and written in an admirable economical style-almost in tone. In terms of writing, it is head and shoulders above the other brief texts I have seen
The rise of the New Model Army by Mark A Kishlansky( Book )

20 editions published between 1979 and 2009 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles I : an abbreviated life by Mark A Kishlansky( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tragedy of Charles I dominates one of the most strange and painful periods in British history as the whole island tore itself apart over a deadly, entangled series of religious and political disputes. In Mark Kishlansky's brilliant account it is never in doubt that Charles created his own catastrophe, but he was nonetheless opposed by men with far fewer scruples and less consistency who for often quite contradictory reasons conspired to destroy him. This is a remarkable portrait of one of the most talented, thoughtful, loyal, moral, artistically alert, and yet, somehow, disastrous of all of England's rulers. -- Amazon.com
