Stories of the plots, sham plots, and the citizen informers who discovered - or fabricated - them are at the heart of this compelling study of the decade following the 1688 Revolution. Weil examines how the 'discoveries' of plots, debates about their authenticity, and controversies about how the government dealt with them affected the 'securing of their Majesties' Persons and Government' - national security in modern parlance - and public perception of the Williamite regime.
