About the Book

"A History of the Early Part of the Reign of James the Second," written by Charles James Fox, offers an in-depth examination of a significant period in English history. Fox dives at King James II's difficult reign from the vantage point of a notable leader and statesman. The book presents an in-depth examination of this momentous age, with astute analysis and a concentration on political and constitutional issues. Fox's study focuses on James II's reign from 1685 to 1688, a period marked by great political and ecclesiastical upheaval. The author deftly dissects James II's contentious policies and decisions, particularly his efforts to enhance royal authority and promote Catholicism in a largely Protestant country. Fox's story also digs into the reactions of various factions, such as the Whigs and Tories, to the king's conduct. Fox's perspective as a statesman adds complexity to the story, providing insights into the motivations and considerations of the time's political participants. He investigates the conflict between the crown and Parliament, the ramifications of religious divides, and the events that led up to the Glorious Revolution of 1688.

About Author

Charles James Fox

Charles James Fox (24 January 1749 – 13 September 1806) was a notable British Whig statesman whose parliamentary career spanned 38 years in the late 18th and early 19th century. He was called The Honourable from 1762. He was the Tory politician William Pitt the Younger's arch-rival; his father, Henry Fox, 1st Baron Holland, a notable Whig of the time, had been Pitt's famous father, William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham ("Pitt the Elder"). Fox rose to fame in the House of Commons as a dynamic and articulate speaker with an infamous and colorful private life, yet with conservative and orthodox views at the time. However, with the advent of the American War of Independence and the influence of Whig Edmund Burke, Fox's views were some of the most extreme to be heard in the British Parliament of his day.
