'It is a comprehensive study which will no doubt establish Williamson's reputation as a major authority on the high politics of this tense and dramatic period ... The book is a mine of information. New material has been unearthed, often from obscure archives. From such research comes a real understanding of the actors in the drama ... a valuable and highly rewarding contribution to the analysis of a highly significant historical event.'
