From the Back Cover:

This book traces the evolution of the House of Lords as a court for private litigation during the critically important years from 1621 to 1675. It offers new insights into contemporary politics, government and religion, adding an important dimension to our understanding of the history of the House of Lords. Justice Upon Petition is primary reading for advanced undergraduates and postgraduate students on courses on early Stuart England, the Civil War and Restoration history; it will also be of interest to those on outline courses of the period and professional historians. Justice Upon Petition is the first study to focus on the House of Lords as a court of law, offering the reader an entirely new perspective on the critical legal issues dominating the period. The book draws upon the large archive of legal records situated in the House of Lords Records Office. It is written in a clear, concise style and is full of fascinating insights into James I, Ship Money and the politics of the Earl of Shaftesbury, among others.

Review:
