[Milton-L] 17th Century contexts

Dear Jeffrey Shoulson et al.,

I am up against the same problem.  The bookstore just told me today that I
cannot order it.  One idea I had is to copy the entire book b/c it is out of
print: it¹s amazing how well it has stood the test of time.  I have looked
over a couple of other books but they are too long; or give coverage to the
16th and 17th centuries, and I only need the latter; or are repetitive.  So,
I too would like to hear about successes others have had.

Subject: [Milton-L] 17th Century contexts

I turn to the list for some help in a matter that, I know, has been raised
in one form or another before.
In previous years, I have used Graham Parry's The Seventeenth Century:  The
Intellectual and Cultural Context of English Literature, 1603-1700 (Longman
Group, 1989) as a handy single-volume overview of the period for my
undergraduate courses in 17th century literature.  The book went out of
print about five years ago and I am in search of a substitute, a single
volume review of the major political, religious, philosophical, social
trends and conflicts in seventeenth-century England.
Any suggestions?
