Pauline Croft's clear and concise study provides a narrative of the reign of King James VI and I in his dominions of England, Ireland, and Scotland, together with an authoritative analysis of his remarkable, though flawed, achievements. Croft emphasizes the inter-relationships between domestic and foreign policy, religious tensions at home and abroad, finance and parliamentary politics, while also discussing the king's writings, his personal life, and his approach to the problems posed by multiple monarchy. "King James" is the first account of the monarch to place him in the context of all his kingdoms.
