IT has gone down in history as the Glorious Revolution of 1688.

Whether the word glorious is a true description of the bloody, brutal events which led to a dramatic change in the course of history can still be a subject of debate.

Here Tim Harris has traced the events behind the revolution when William III seized the kingdoms of James II.

Harris, who is professor of history at Brown University, Rhode Island, and once at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, captured the extraordinary events of the period in a book which explains a great turning point in the history of Britain.
