About the Authors
  • The comprehensive history of parliament, The House of Commons 1604–1629, was published in 2010. A monumental series, it provides biographical and constituency studies covering the period. This widely praised, groundbreaking introductory survey, previously only available as part of the six-volume work, is now published as a separate volume. The first ever account of the early seventeenth-century House of Commons as an institution, it shows how there was a crisis of legislation in the 1620s and how the committee of the whole House transformed the way the House operated. Covering a period of intense historiographical interest and debate, it draws on the most comprehensive treatment of politics, elections and parliament in the period ever assembled, the result of research in over 170 archives.
