Paderewski by Adam Zamoyski

The History of the Rebellion and the Civil Wars in England by Edward Hyde

  
The year is 1646. The first phase of the conflict that would become known as the English Civil War has just ended. King Charles I has been defeated for the first time in the series of wars that would ultimately lead to his execution. In response to powerful Parliamentarian propaganda, he asks his friend Edward Hyde, later Earl of Clarendon, to write a ‘true history’ of the rebellion. The result has become a classic of historical writing and of political philosophy, said to anticipate the work of Hume, Burke, and Acton.

Liberty Against the Law by Christopher Hill
 
In 17th-century England, the law was not an instrument of justice - it was an instrument of oppression. So argues Christopher Hill in this classic study. Hill explores the immense social changes that occurred and the expressions of liberty against the law through, for example, the literary culture of the times and the hero-worship of the outlaw. He has much to say about class, religion and the shift away from the importance of the church after the Reformation.
