"The high level of scholarship now being produced is well represented in Gerald MacLean's new collection of essays...The book as a whole is well-presented..." D.R. Woolf, Dalhousie Review "This entertaining collection of essays accomplishes two significant feats: it offers a strong set of individual pieces on particular late seventeenth-century writers that, when read together, invite one to speculate more generally on the ways in which 'the restoration' has been delineated and investigated by different academic disciplines...Culture and Society in the Stuart Restoration handsomely delivers on its openeing promise to cause us to think more deeply about the ways in which individuals respond to dramatic national changes and the ways we study them."
