Description

Sir Robert Heath's career in public office illustrates the workings of early Stuart government and politics, while his private life throws light on the structure of English society as it moved towards civil war. This biography is particularly welcome, and Kopperman makes excellent use of a wide range of primary sources... Heath deserves to be remembered, not least because he embodied attitudes and assumptions which were in many respects characteristic of the ancien regime in England. Kopperman's biography is a worthy memorial. HISTORYThe book adds a good deal to our knowledge and understanding of a significant political figure... a useful and welcome book.
