    Less than 30 years after Charles II was restored to the throne, his brother James II was forced to make way for his son-in-law, William of Orange. Describing momentous days that shaped the nation's future, this narrative history tells of a stubborn and bigoted king at odds with his subjects, of religious conflict and political intrigue, and shows how the Revolution of 1688 created a constitutional monarchy and paved the way for modern parliamentary democracy.
