1715 : the great Jacobite Rebellion

D. Szechi
"Drawing on a substantial range of fresh primary resources in England, Scotland and France, Daniel Szechi analyses not only large and dramatic moments of the Jacobite rebellion but also the smaller risings that took place throughout Scotland and northern England. He examines the complex reasons that led some men to rebel and others to stay at home, and he reappraises the economic, religious, social and political circumstances that precipitated a Jacobite rising. Shedding new light on the inner world of the Jacobites, Szechi reveals the surprising significance of their widely supported but ultimately doomed rebellion."--Jacket
