What do maypoles, charivari processions, and stoolball matches have to do with the English civil war?. A great deal, argues Underdown in this provocative reinterpretation of the English Revolution. Through an original synthesis of social history and popular culture, Underdown links these regionally diverse political opinions to cultural diversity and shows that local differences in popular allegiance in the civil war strikingly coincided with regional contrasts in the traditional festive culture.
