Ambition and Failure in Stuart England: The Career of John, First Viscount Scudamore

Sampul Depan
Manchester University Press, 1999 - 322 halaman
A follower of Archbishop William Laud, Viscount Scudamore was an ambitious politician. This closely researched study examines how he sought power and prestige through his support of the Crown's financial, religious and military policies; it also examines how he manipulated concepts of honor to present himself on various stages. Through the career of one man, Ian Atherton illuminates much recent work on Laudianism, the Personal Rule of Charles I, Caroline foreign policy, royalism and the outbreak of the civil war.
