Repealers and anti-repealers had different visions of what sort of Christian polity England was to be.

      In addition to the novel interpretation the book offers of both and revolutions more generally, it also offers an unusual reading experience as, at the end of the introduction, Pincus points readers with different interests to start reading the main book at different chapters inside.   The Dutch Army and the Military Revolutions, –, by Olaf van Nimwegen, tr. Andrew May As befits such an important subject, the book is impressively weighty, containing nearly pages with nine appendices and eleven chapters. Six of them provide a succinct campaign history, constructing a chronological framework which in practice Author: Aaron Graham.
