History of England, from the Accession of James II - (Volume 1, Chapter 03)

0

This is the third chapter in Macaulay’s great History of England from the Accession of James II. In this chapter
Macaulay looks at the state of the nation in 1685. He discusses the population, the revenue, the military
system, the roads, the inns, the coaches, the great cities and, of course London, its coffee houses and first
experiments in street lighting. An interesting diversion from Macaulays’s usual obsession with politics but
worry not, he still manages to crowbar some political intriguing into this chapter. (Summary by Jim Mowatt)
