Although many aspects of this episode have received historical attention, Charless own role has not hitherto been investigated in detail. Using a large body of newly available evidence, Dr Donald here attempts to redress the balance, and in doing so offers a substantially new perspective on the Scottish troubles in the crisis years of 1637 41. This study sheds light on the processes whereby Charles, with counsel and yet often in spite of it, tried to uphold his case.
