Book cover of The Blazing World: A New History of Revolutionary England, 1603-1689 by Jonathan Healeyby Jonathan Healey

A fresh, exciting, “readable and informative history (The New York Times) of seventeenth-century England, a time of revolution when society was on fire and simultaneously forging the modern world• “Recapture[s] a lost moment when a radically democratic commonwealth seemed possible.”—Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker
“[Healy] makes a convincing argument that the turbulent era qualifies as truly ‘revolutionary,’ not simply because of its cascading political upheavals, but in terms of far-reaching changes within society…. Wryly humorous and occasionally bawdy”— The Wall Street Journal
