Political, social, and economic factors are integrated in this book, the two themes of which are the political and constitutional effects of rapid inflation and the difficulties caused by the universal desire to achieve and enforce religion in a theologically divided country.

Provides by far the best consecutive account of parliamentary politics during this crucial decade. Russell's superb control of his sources is immediately apparent....[A] magnificent book. * American Historical Review *
