History of England (Audio Book) from the Accession of James II, vol2 chapter 6 by Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859) This chapter starts from about 1685. James is on the throne and, as ever, there are disputes between crown and Parliament. We see the Habeus Corpus Act introduced, the persecution of the Huguenots and troubles in Ireland. 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)
