Politics and Opinion in Crisis, 1678-81 by Mark Knights

Book Description

The aftermath of the Popish Plot and the subsequent succession crisis of the years 1678 to 1681 are the context for this new study. It asks two key questions: was there an exclusion crisis? and did these years witness the birth of modern political parties? The author argues that the unrest was not simply due to a centrally organized party machine based around the single issue of exclusion; but was a broad-based controversy about the succession, fears of popery and arbitrary government which produced ideological polarization and political sophistication. Part One examines central politics to explore the succession crisis within the context of the court and an emergent political structure. Part Two explores public opinion in the country as a whole, and argues that propaganda electioneering, religious conflict and petitions committed men to organized networks of belief.

Devil in Disguise by Mark Knights Devil in Disguise, Paperback (September 2015)

Faction Displayed by Mark Knights Faction Displayed, Paperback (February 2012)

Representation and Misrepresentation in Later Stuart Britain by Mark Knights Representation and Misrepresentation in Later Stuart Britain, Paperback (September 2006)

This book argues that the period from 1675 was the second stage of a 17th-century revolution that ran on until 1720. It traces the development of the public as an arbiter of politics, the growth of a national political culture, the shift towards a representative society, and a political enlightenment rooted in local and national partisan conflict.
