The period from 1603 to 1660 is characterised by complex religious and political developments, and dramatic events such as the execution of Charles I, civil war and the introduction of a republican form of government. In this clearly argued account, Graham E. Seel identifies the main political, religious and economic factors that help explain the events of this turbulent period, and assesses the role of leading personalities such as James VI and I, Charles I, Buckingham and Cromwell. Regicide and republic includes the additional document study The Civil War, 1637-49.
The AS textbooks are ideal for students who have never studied the history of these periods before. they provide detailed background information on the period studied, and include notes explaining key terms, lists of significant dates, and focus questions to consolidate learning.
All of the AS titles have been endorsed by OCR for use with their AS specification for history, and several of the titles will also be appropriate for Edexcel and AQA study units.
Many of the books include a seperate document section, where students can study and evaluate a range of source material.
Shorter themed books explore particular topics in greater depth. The topics examined can be linked with the period covering foundation texts, providing students and teachers with flexibillity in structuring A Level courses.
