This celebrated study, first published in 1951, offers a reinterpretation of the writings and attitudes of Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon (1609-74), best known for his History of the Rebellion and the Civil War and his autobiography, which presents an excellent record of the English Civil War. Mr Wormald reconstructs the attitudes of this controversial figure towards the earth-shaking events of the war and what made him change his ideas. His answers reverse the traditional view, espoused by S. R. Gardiner, of Hyde's thought.
