Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The author of the standard history, The English Civil War, extends his inquiry to the narrow waist of peace between when King Charles I was decisively defeated by Parliamentary forces and when he took up the struggle again apparently as strong as ever. Ashton focuses on the forces of conservatism, the individuals and parties that fought with the Parliament the first time around, but switched sides when hostilities broke out again in 1648.
