1 Tony Claydon
Europe and the Making of England, 1660-1760
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0521850045 / 9780521850049; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 
Wide-ranging and original re-interpretation of English history and national identity during the vital century (1660–1760) in which the country emerged as the leading world power and developed its peculiarly free political culture. Disputing the insular and xenophobic image of the English in the period, and denying that this was an age of secularisation, Tony Claydon demonstrates instead the country's active participation in a 'protestant international' and its deep attachment to a European 'Christendom'. He shows how these outward-looking identities shaped key developments by generating a profound sense of duty to God's foreign faithful. The English built a world-beating state by intervening abroad to defend Christendom and the reformation, and their politics were forged as they debated different understandings of these international entities. England may have diverged from continental norms in this period but this book shows that it did so because of its intense religious engagement with that continent. • A major re-interpretation of the reasons for England’s rise to great power status, and the development of her internal political culture • Stresses the key role of international Protestantism and Christendom in the development of England in the period • A key text for students of early modern British history and religious history Contents Introduction; 1. Space: English confessional geography; 2. Time: English confessional chronology; 3. England in Europe: the rise of a great power; 4. Europe in England: the opening of politics; Conclusion: the paradox of peculiarity. Printed Pages: 400 with 3 half-tones. 018605
