The financial revolution marked the end of medieval England, and through the major institutions such as Lloyds and the Bank of England, laid the foundations on which England's emergence as a world power was based. The subsequent changes radically altered English politics, and this book aims to provide a concise guide to them. The series provides analysis of complex issues and problems in important A level Modern History topics. Using supporting documents, the books aim to give students a clear account of historical facts and an understanding of the central themes and differing interpretations. It is aimed at A level, first year university students and those at polytechnics and colleges of higher education. It should also be of interest to the general public who have an interest in British history.
Each book in the Seminar Studies series provides a concise and reliable introduction to a wide range of complex historical events and debates, covering topics in British, European, US and world history from the early modern period to the present day. Written by acknowledged experts and including supporting material such as extracts from historical documents, chronologies, glossaries, guides to key figures and further reading suggestions, Seminar Studies titles are essential reading for students of history.
Almost half a century after its launch, the series continues to introduce students to the problems involved in explaining the past, giving them the opportunity to grapple with historical documents and encouraging them to reach their own conclusions.
