The History of England from the Accession of James II, volume 1, Chapter 2 part 1-3
The History of England (Audio Book) from the Accession of James II, volume 1, Chapter 2 by Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859) This is the second chapter of Thomas Babington Macaulay's History of England from the Succession of James II. In this chapter we see the restoration of the House of Stuart. The mood of the people sours toward the Roundheads, Army and, of course the Puritans. An examination of the character of Charles II. We see Charles attempting to recruit assistance from France so he can attain absolute monarchy and so emulate Lewis the Fourteenth, the French Sun King. The History of England from the Accession of James the Second The History of England from the Accession of James the Second (1848) is the full title of the five volume work by Lord Macaulay (1800--1859) more generally known as The History of England. It covers the period from 1685 to 1702, encompassing the reign of James II, the Glorious Revolution, the coregency of William and Mary, and up to William III's death. Macaulay's approach to writing the History was innovative for his period. He consciously fused the picturesque, dramatic style of classical historians such as Thucydides and Tacitus with the learned and factual approach of his 18th century precursors such as Hume, following the plan laid out in his own earlier "Essay on History" (1828)
