Overview

Overview

An investigation of the concept of Jacobitism and its effects in the long eighteenth century.
The first half of the Britain's long eighteenth century was a period fraught with conflicts ranging from civil wars (1688-1691) to a series of Jacobite plots, intrigues, and rebellions. It was also a formative period marked by substantial changes including the growth and centralisation of an empire and the maturation of party politics and the public sphere. Covering almost forty years of this colourful history over an expansive geographical range, this book examines both the existence and meaning of Jacobitism and anti-Jacobitism throughout Britain's Atlantic empire. Drawing on a diverse source base, the author captures the essence of the transatlantic, tripartite relationship between politics, religion, and the public sphere, thus contributing to our understandings of the Anglicization of the British Atlantic world.
