Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Roger Mason has provided an excellent and useful edition of four of John Knox's 1558 tracts....In keeping with earlier volumes in this Cambridge series, Mason has modernized the spelling, punctuation, and paragraphing besides providing a useful glossary, all of which make the works accessible to students without sacrificing scholarly integrity." Richard Greaves, Church History

"...presents the best collection of this great Scot Reformer's political writings." Christian Sociologist Newsletter
