About The Book

This is a fascinating collection of essays illustrating the latest thought on the crucial decade of the 1670s in Britain. This was a period in which it could be argued the modern world began to emerge. These essays reflect and analyse these tensions, illustrating the surprising routes by which 'modern' ideas made progress.
