HIST 0440 Glorious Revolution to American Revolution

This tutorial examines British history during the long eighteenth century, beginning with the so-called Glorious Revolution of 1688.  This expelled the Catholic dynasty of the Stuarts from Britain, but it has also been seen as opening up a new era in political, social and economic history.  Themes of this era include religious toleration, the development of Parliamentary government, the Union with Scotland in 1707, commercial  expansion and the spread of empire.  Many of these issues contributed to the American Revolution.
