in Lonely Planet

随便翻出很早以前买的 Lonely Planet 英国,trust me to open it up to a page I am thinking about. 因为之前记录了一下随便看到的一本历史书,公平起见,可以对比一下 LP 里的内战的描述,同样的不能以 “简单处理造成失真” 来搪塞。特别是这一句大错特错:

The Civil War had been a bitter conflict, but it failed to exhaust Cromwell’s appetite for mayhem; a devastating rampage to gain control of Ireland followed quickly in its wake.

后面还说了科学和文化的发展是复辟之后的事情,这个 Hill 也不会同意,但是感觉情有可原(因为牛顿的地位太高了)?
