It has never been easy for King Charles I to get a fair trial, but now is as opportune a time as any. The past two decades have witnessed a deluge of new works about early Stuart politics. These new works have caused both excitement and confusion. It has not always been clear how one new work relates to another, how any of the new scholarship relates to the old, and where in the end we are left with respect to Charles. The present-book attempts to dispel this confusion. It guides the reader through recent literature, clarifies the issues at stake, and frankly suggests which historians have been right and which have been wrong where Charles is concerned.
