The Revolting 17th Century

Friday, 12 May 2023

Bloomsbury Publising has released a new title looking at the turbulent and violent Seventeenth Century written by University of Oxford educator and researcher Dr. Jonathan Healey. ‘The Blazing World: a New History of Revolutionary England’ was released in February 2023. Rather than a biography of key figures in the dramatic events of the century, this book examines public figures and the lives of ordinary people alike. Historian Ronald Hutton’s quote from the publisher's publicity describes the book as having "plenty of very unfamiliar anecdotes and characters, drawn from all over the nation and all of Stuart society.” ISBN 9781526621658
