In light of recent scholarship and of altering perceptions of the English past, Michael Mullet reconsiders the events of the crucial years 1678-1688. From the Restoration era through the exclusion crisis, and subsequent reign of James to the Glorious Revolution' of 1688, he focuses on the central role of James, duke of York, and from 1685 to 1688, king of England, but locates the growing difficulties of his reign within the wider context of political and religious trends.
After introducing the Restoration era, the book highlights the phase of acute tension between the event leading to the reign of James II--the disclosure' of the Popish Plot of 1678, the miltant campaign to exclude the Catholic James from succession, the subsequent conservative reaction, and the final culmination of these events in the Revolution of 1688.
