'Edward Corp's fine book illuminates many dark corners of what has too long been a neglected area of historical discourse.' The Tablet 'Edward Corp's fascinating, well written, and thorough examination of the Stuart court in exile after the Glorious Revolution of 1688 presents a special case that casts light on many of the issues ... Without doubt, A Court in Exile will be the standard work on the subject for years to come.' H-Albion@h-net.msu.edu 'Corp can only be praised for producing a first rate study of a forgotten chapter in British history. This important work destroys many myths about the exiled Stuarts and brings the Court of Saint-Germain vividly to life.' The Art Book 'Howard Erskine-Hill is the most formidable literary historian in their ranks ...'. Journal of Ecclesiastical History '... beautifully produced and well-illustrated ... will prove the definitive work on the subject for decades to come. ... Corp must be congratulated for his achievement. ... A Court in Exile provides us with a clear, well-sourced, and in-depth understanding of the problems facing the Stuarts in France ... it is hard to see how anybody will ever better Corp's fair-minded effort to explain this most slippery of subjects.'
