Whig's Progress: Tom Wharton Between Revolutions

Portada
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 2004 - 318 pàgines
"A biography of Wharton ("Tom," to his family, his friends, and by 1680, to political England) involves an account of the tortuous Popish Plot, the Exclusion Crisis, the formation of the Whig and Tory parties, and the intricacies of the Glorious Revolution. Without oversimplifying a very complex set of events, the author has made his treatment both accurate and readily comprehensible to twenty-first-century readers." "Clark has searched through original documents and used primary sources as much as possible. He has also corrected many errors in secondary sources, producing a readable yet authoritative history of a major political figure in the Restoration era."--Jacket.
