Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[T]his is a volume worthy of its honoree. [A]nyone interested in early seventeenth-century English politics or religion will find much of interest here...a brilliant demonstration of how to do a close textual reading as well as a model of lively historical prose." Eric Josef Carlson, Gustavus Adolphus College, Albion

"Their introduction serves as a valuable primer on the origins, issues, and arguments in defense of a revisionist approach, as well as on Russell's distinct contributions. [T]he editors manage to include essays that reflect the great breadth of Russell's own scholarly inquiry. Most essays are of high quality and have implications relevant to a wide range of scholars. The volume is a fitting tribute to Earl Russell." Lisa McClain, Boise State University, Sixteenth Century Journal

"...a truly inspiring collection of essays...a must read for anyone interested in the field. It is a tribute to Russell's own intellectual stature that he has been able to inspire such a superb collection of essays in his honor." American Historical Review

"This collection of essays compellingly illustrates the current sophistication and complexity of early Stuart political and religious historiography, and sets out several paths for future exploration." H-Net Review

"It is tempting to praise this collection for its contribution to understanding politico-religious dynamcis in the causes of the English Civil War and early Stuart history. The essays in this book doubtless will provoke further inquiry and debate. Perhaps that is itself tribute to Russell." Renaissance Quarterly
