About the Author

K.J. Kesselring is Professor of History and Associate Dean, Academic, at Dalhousie University, Canada.

"The trial of Charles I is one of the most important events in British history, and the documentary evidence surrounding it is thrilling and evocative. This wonderful new edition offers not just the colour but also the complexity of the surviving sources; it reveals the contested nature of the events themselves, as well as ongoing debates about their meaning and significance. In addition to the amazing record of the trial itself, we are presented with neglected evidence about how profoundly the king's death affected even the most radical of contemporary commentators. As such, the book casts new and genuinely thought-provoking light on these momentous events." -- Jason Peacey, University College London

"This compendium of primary sources provides an indispensable teaching resource for studying the trial of Charles I. Kesselring's contextual introduction guides the reader through recent controversies among historians over how to interpret the trial, while providing a list of penetrating questions to stimulate enquiry and debate. The volume's strength lies in the different perspectives offered by its selected texts; its inclusion of an account of the regicide Thomas Harrison's trial invites readers to explore further comparative dimensions." -- Andrew Hopper, University of Leicester
