About the Author

Clive Holmes is a leading English Civil War Historian and Fellow of Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.


"This book will certainly not end the debate but it will help its participants to clarify their thoughts and views." Contemporary Review
"An intelligent encounter with a living past." - English Historical Review
Mentioned in Contemporary Review, 2007.
"Holmes provides thorough, thoughtful, and learned answers to the questions he poses. He has researched widely and deeply. He is at his best when he brings his special expertise in local history to bear on larger questions...Throughout the book, Holmes effectively demonstrates that godly zeal and political radicalism might prevail for a day, but in the long run they were no match for the inertia of tradition and entrenched interests." Michael B. Young, The Historian, Vol. 70, No. 1--Sanford Lakoff
