Riot, Rebellion and Revolution: British Political History, 1603-1660:

Dr Jeremy Boulton

Mondays, 12 noon, Lecture Room A

Reading list and thematic bibliography: Semester 2: 2001, 29/1/2001

This is an exhausting (but far from exhaustive) list of the main works on this period. Only a few articles are included: those wishing to find out more should browse in recent volumes of the following journals: The Historical Journal; Past and Present: Journal of British Studies; English Historical Review; Historical Research. Other books or articles will be recommended in lectures. You should remember, too, that many journals are now also provided by the Robinson library in electronic form, enabling you to read onscreen or print out articles published recently, and in some cases since the journal's beginnings.

This is the URL for Electronic journals:

This is the URL for the Riot and Rebellion Home page, which you can also access via the History department home page:

You are also advised to browse in the appropriate sections of the Robinson Library. I have put in some Shelf marks to make this a simple task. Also remember that the History department has a small but useful seminar library.

The thematic bibliography attempts to provide a rough guide to the subject areas covered by each book. It is rather long, but then at least you will have less reason to say: 'I couldn't find any books'... Books of especial importance are in bold italic. Vital works are also underlined.


The textbooks are not included in the thematic bibliography but should always be consulted. Also get used to consulting documents, where possible.

The following books are recommended as basic textbooks for this part of the course. This period is overburdened with good textbooks and readers..
