Based upon a wealth of primary sources and a life of research in the field, this history provides a fascinating discussion of the development of the House of Commons during the early years of Stuart rule. Mr. Notestein was completing work on the manuscript at his death in 1969. The basic issues characterizing the confrontations between James I and the Commons are examined, including the matters of royal prerogatives that were increasingly questioned by the Commons in the period 1604-1610. To these are added the awkward problems attendant upon the prospective Union of England and Scotland under a monarch of Scottish origins. Mr. Notestein makes it clear that the Commons, following the age of Elizabeth, was consciously searching out a new sense of itself and its powers; neither James nor the House of Lords was able to appreciate fully the trends accompanying the Commons' quest for a broadened role in national affairs. Mr. Notestein's work is a superb narrative constantly enriched by in-depth research and enlivened by an impressive mixture of analytical commentary and personalized speculation.
