The Glorious Revolution by Eveline Cruickshanks( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Glorious Revolution is the most radical reassessment to date of the origins, circumstances and impact of the Revolution of 1688-89. Eveline Cruickshanks argues that James II was a revolutionary king who granted complete religious toleration because he believed it was morally right. This led to strong Tory opposition and induced William of Orange, husband of Mary, James's eldest daughter, to intervene. The religious and political conflicts of James II's reign gave William of Orange and the Dutch States an opportunity to mount an international coalition, and to invade England in November 1688 with an army twice the size of James II's and a navy more powerful than the Spanish Armada in 1588. Deceit about William's designs on the Crown and treachery on the part of prominent noblemen and army officers made the attempt succeed." "This is the only single work to cover Scotland and Ireland - where the impact of the Revolution was great, and led to the Union with Scotland in 1707 and the Irish Wars, leaving problems that are still unresolved today."--Jacket

The Stuart courts( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The regal courts of the English Stuart Kings, from James I (1603-1625) to the ill-fated James II (1685-1689), were magnificent affairs. In a country otherwise given to increasingly austere Puritan ways of living, the royal court shone with a brilliance usually associated with the courts of the Catholic kings of mainland Europe. They were centres of great culture, patronage, ceremony and politics. The real importance of the courts, though down-played for many years, is now beginning to be fully recognised and this first major study of the Stuart courts in England, Scotland and Ireland examines them in their full cultural and historical context."--Global Books in Print
The Stuart court in exile and the Jacobites by Eveline Cruickshanks( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years Jacobitism has become a subject of growing interest to historians amid lively academic controversy over various aspects of the subject. The least-known phase of Jacobitism, although in many ways the most important, is the period 1689 to 1718, when the Stuart court in exile was at Saint-Germain-en-Laye, the residence of the kings of France until Louis XIV built Versailles." "Based on original research in a wide range of contemporary sources, this collection of original essays illuminates the early development of Jacobitism, placing the movement in a coherent historical context. The volume includes a substantial introduction by Edward Corp on the Stuart court and a major essay by Eveline Cruickshanks on the importance of Jacobitism in Britain and its links with the exiled court." "Other essays discuss Jacobite ideology and the Jacobite press; the internal workings and external relations of the exiled court; the abortive invasion of England in 1692; and Jacobite exiles - comparable in numbers and influence to the Huguenots in England - in France."--Jacket
The Atterbury plot by Eveline Cruickshanks( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Atterbury Plot Eveline Cruickshanks and Howard Erskine-Hill elucidate the different stages of the attempt to restore the Stuarts from 1720 to 1723 directed by Bishop Atterbury, and look at the reasons why a High Anglican such as Atterbury saw the restoration of the Catholic Stuarts as the means of saving Britain." "This book unravels for the first time the scale and international dimension of a plot that posed the most serious challenge to the Hanoverian regime before the Forty-five rebellion."--Jacket
