Notes

'Tom Woods, in providing a fresh and meticulous account of the Kentish petitions of 1642, has made a perceptive contribution to our understanding of the immediate circumstances in which the English Civil War broke out. As a study, too, of a notable lawyer, Sir Thomas Malet, this book illumines much else besides - not least the minutiae of judicial procedure and the conduct of assizes.'
