A Royal City in a Time of Revolution
9780719090400   Product Code: 23165
Westminster was at the eye of the storm during the tumultuous years between the beginning of the Civil War and the Restoration: this study looks at the town itself, a venue of great events that has been 'curiously invisible to historians' gaze'. Merritt explores Westminster during that period as a nationally important urban centre with a complex local society and culture where people ranging from poor rural immigrants to aristocrats of the royal court lived in close proximity. No jacket.
