About this book


Students of early Stuart politics face a bewildering array of books and articles published in recent years. The purpose of the present book is to guide readers through this maze of writings, clarify the issues at stake, and ultimately determine who has been right and wrong about Charles I. While this book is distinguished by its frank discussion of current scholarship, it is organised around a dramatic narrative of events intended to hold the interest of students and acquaint them with the basic events of Charles's reign.
