From the Publisher"[The book's] writing is clear and engaging, and the level of scholarship is high...Jackson's book is a significant contribution to the literature and will be of value to anyone interested in Hobbes, the political and religious struggles of the English Civil Wars, or in the seventeenth-century intellectual history."
American Historical Review, Douglas M. Jesseph, North Carolina State University
"Nicholas Jackson’s account of the debate over free will between Hobbes and Bramhall, originating in the 1640s before spilling into print in the 1650s, is yet another welcome contribution to the study of Hobbes, while also bringing the bishop out from the philosopher’s shadow and releasing their encounter from the confines of philosophy and theology. Cambridge University Press continues to confirm the value of adding the consideration of context to the consideration of texts, in its Early Modern British History series as much as those series overseen by Quentin Skinner." -Geoff Kemp, The European Legacy
