Reader recommendation: Intellectual Origins of the English Revolution

Monitor readers share their favorite picks.

of

Intellectual Origins of the English Revolution by Christopher Hill is a detailed account of how individuals with independent views took on an undisciplined authoritarian government and won. At the beginning, the state effectively controlled the print media. Eventually publishing became cheaper and a middle class with increasing prosperity could buy reading material that supported individual and family life. The authoritarian state and its intrusions in private life declined as individual freedoms and prosperity thrived.
