    Focusing on the century between the restoration in 1660 and the accession of George III in 1760, and against traditional historical views of English secularization during that period, Claydon aims 'to explain how the English adhered to a vehement Protestantism, yet remained closely connected to a continent on which Catholicism predominated'. He explores this apparent paradox in English attitudes to the outside world at the crucial moment when England emerged as the world's premier power. Felt-tip mark on upper trimmed egde.
