The authors examine relations between Crown and Parliment during the Stuart period. Topics include the nature and functions of parliments in the seventeenth century, changes in the balance of power as Parliment appeared first to take the intiative then lose it to resurgent monarchy, and the evolution of Parliment into a permanent institution. Includes a number of case studies to illustrate the issues studied.
