    The remnant of the Long Parliament, reassembled by invitation of the Army after the effective collapse of Richard Cromwell's Protectorate, saw a reinstated Commonwealth and an optimism among republicans that is often overlooked. Dr Mayers's study focuses on the hopes and strength of the republicans in 1659, exploring Parliament's relations with the Army, the City of London, the provinces and Scotland; and discussing the political identity and iconography of republican print.
