Editorial Reviews

"If court culture was ultimately about power, what should we make of the courts of the powerless, those built around dethroned, exiled royal dynasties?  In The Jacobites at Urbino, Edward Corp provides a thought-provoking answer. 
"Corp's study is an important contribution to both court and Jacobite studies, and will be of interest to scholars in both fields."
