"This book is valuable in many spheres of study...The book is a highly valuable resource to which researchers at many levels will turn for new and exciting insights. While there is a great sense of the care to provide well-researched articles, there is more; the authors were clearly happy to acknowledge their debt to their mentor and this makes this book, above all else a pleasure to read and enjoy."

This is a collection of essays about major aspects of the 'English Revolution' of the mid seventeenth century. It examines how it was fought ('soldiers'), how it was defended and argued over ('writers'), and how it was shaped and how it failed ('statesmen'). The essays are written by both established and younger scholars of the period in honour of Austyn Woolrych, founding Professor of History at the University of Lancaster and the author of many influential books and articles.
