Culture and Society in the Stuart Restoration by Gerald MacLean

Book Description

What specifically distinguishes Restoration culture and society from what went before and came after? And how did early modern British women and men accommodate themselves to the dramatic historical changes of the seventeenth century? This study, which brings together recent work by leading historians as well as literary and cultural critics of the period, shows how the Restoration produced the concept of a national literature crucial to a new nationalist cultural enterprise: questions of national identity and difference, of what it meant to be English or British or both, came to be framed in terms of international trade and imperial ambition; and religious and royal authority gave way before the advance of a secular literary culture geared to the demands of a developing commercial and imperial nation.

Books By Author Gerald MacLean

Britain and the Islamic World, 1558-1713 by Gerald MacLean Britain and the Islamic World, 1558-1713, Hardback (May 2011)

Explores the interactions between Britain and the Islamic world from 1558 to 1713, showing how much scholars, diplomats, traders, captives, travellers, clerics, and chroniclers were involved in developing and describing those interactions.

Looking East by Gerald MacLean Looking East, Hardback (September 2007)

Looking East examines how English encounters with the Ottoman Empire helped shape national identities and imperial ambitions. Engagingly written in an accessible style, this book demonstrates how the so-called 'conflict of civilizations' separating the Muslim East from the Christian West is a false and dangerous myth.

Country and the City Revisited by Gerald MacLean Country and the City Revisited, Paperback (November 2006)

A revisionist interdisciplinary study of the transformation of England into an imperial power between 1550 and 1850.

Re-Orienting the Renaissance by Gerald MacLean Re-Orienting the Renaissance, Hardback (October 2005)

Explores how the Renaissance entailed a global exchange of goods, skills and ideas between East and West. The authors interrogate what may seem to be settled certainties, such as the difference between East and West, the conflict between Islam and Christianity, and the 'rebirth' of European civilization in classical Greece and Imperial Rome.
