This volume contributes to the current reassessment of the Glorious Revolution by bringing together the work of leading American, British and Dutch scholars. What emerges from these 15 essays is the conviction that in spite of differing angles of approach, the process of reinterpreting the Revolution requires a combined study of English and Dutch history within the context of European history. The long tradition of viewing the events of 1688-89 as a uniquely and exclusively British affair, which gave birth to liberal England with its contingent political and religious liberties, is finally put to rest. The essays offer new insights on topics that have long engaged the attention of scholars of early modern Europe, along with insights on topics that have not previously been deemed relevant to our understanding of the Revolution.
