Alan Stewart's impeccably researched new biography makes brilliant use
of original sources to bring to life the conversations and the
controversies of the Jacobean age. From James's 'inadvised'
relationships with a series of favourites and Gentlemen of the
Bedchamber to his conflicts with a Parliament which refused to fit its
legislation to the Monarch's will, Stewart lucidly untangles the
intricacies of James's life. In doing so, he uncovers the extent to
which Charles I's downfall was caused by the cracks that appeared in the
monarchy during his father's reign.
