Abstract:

"John Adamson's book traces the careers and fortunes of the small group of English noblemen who risked their lives to challenge the king's attempt to create an authoritarian monarchy during the 1630s. Beginning with a core of little more than a dozen, this aristocratic leadership exploited a contemporary insurrection in Scotland to stage a daring coup d'etat against Charles's rule in England. Successfully forcing the king to summon a Parliament against his will, they embarked on the creation of an entirely new religious and political order in mainland Britain - one, moreover, which came to have strongly republican overtones." "Based on a mass of newly discovered evidence, The Noble Revolt offers the most comprehensive and detailed re-evaluation in over a century of the crisis which produced the English Civil War."--BOOK JACKET.
