About the Author

David Colclough is Lecturer in English at Queen Mary, University of London. This is his first book.


"Freedom of Speech in Early Stuart England makes a major contribution to our understanding of early modern political discourse. Colclough's impeccable scholarship and mastery of archival sources amasses a vast array of persuasive evidence that effectively describes a culture seriously engaged in civil life and concerned about subject's rights.

His use of recent sources is excellent Renaissance Quarterly Stanford Lehmberg, University of Minnesota
