Henry Neville and English Republican Culture in the Seventeenth Century
Available in Stock
'A political dreamer and wit, philosopher and man of action – the republican Henry Neville has many faces.' So begins Mahlberg's full-length study of the country gentleman, politician, rebel and libeller. She traces Neville's political thought from the English Civil Wars to the exclusion crisis and beyond and, challenging the view of him based on his collaboration with the philosopher James Harrington, she shows Neville to be a political thinker in his own right.
