"This is an excellent introduction to the period that will be stimulating to scholars as well as accessible to students. It integrates original primary research into a persuasive and up-to-date synthesis. It is also the first overview of its kind to take full account of the 'archipelagic' dimension of the Civil Wars." Dr David L. Smith, Selwyn College, Cambridge
