I have found that two books geared toward American students (advanced 
undergraduates and beginning graduate students) are helpful. /Early 
Modern England 1485-1714: A Narrative History/, by Robert Bucholz and 
Newton Key (Blackwell 2004), is especially useful for the 17th century 
(ch. 6-9). Buchholz and Key have edited a companion volume of primary 
sources that you might also check.
