REVIEWS: "The character sketches are shrewd, succinct and mordant . . . Dr. Kenyon obviously decided to enjoy himself: in doing so he has written an enjoyable book." - Christopher Hill, Spectator. "A sensible and realistic account . . . Dr. Kenyon made his name with a first-class piece of detailed research into the most difficult of 17th century subjects, James II's Sunderland. He now shows himself no less good at presenting a sharp, balanced picture in concise form." - A. L. Rowse, Daily Telegraph. "A sardonic, witty, yet scholarly book, written with splendid gusto." - Sunday Times. "Remarkably penetrating . . . Dr. Kenyon has pursued his Stuarts with intelligence and rare single-mindedness. As human beings they emerge more credible and human than has been fashionable for years." - Times Educational Supplement.
