John Adamson’s The Noble Revolt asserts the crucial role of political ideas in the coming cataclysm of the English civil war. His focus is close: the 18 months before the final breach between Charles I and Parliament, but it is as scholarly in depth as it is cinematic in scope. Here is a dramatic retelling of a story we thought we knew well. A detailed history of the political crisis that led to the overthrow of King Charles I, it won the Samuel Pepys Award for the book that makes the greatest contribution to our knowledge of Pepys, his times, or his contemporaries. Unfortunately, it appears to only be out in the UK at the moment, but it's still high on my list of books to acquire.
John Adamson is a Fellow of Peterhouse, Cambridge, and has written extensively on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century political and cultural history. He is a winner of the Royal Historical Society's Alexander Prize and the University of Cambridge's Seeley Medal for History. Adamson tells the story of the events leading up to the Civil War in England, from Summer 1640 to January 1642, the Scots wars and following, when the Parliament wrested control of the country away from the King into its own hands. The title, The Noble Revolt, refers not to the "noble" character of the revolt but rather the leading role of a group of nobles in the House of Lords. This claim constitutes the originality of his book. The book is narrated almost like a detective novel, and it is a real page turner. He takes his time, examining exactly who did what and when and for what reasons.
The Noble Revolt: The Overthrow of Charles I. Authors: Adamson, John. We hope you enjoy your book and that it arrives quickly and is as expected. Read full description. A magnificent new study of the political crisis that produced the overthrow of King Charles I, and came to engulf all three Stuart kingdoms - England, Scotland, and Ireland - in war during the 1640s. John Adamson is a Fellow of Peterhouse, Cambridge, and has written extensively on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century political and cultural history.
Adamson argues that while these factors existed, the key years of the early 1640s (this book is very focused in scope and does not discuss the actual course of the Civil War at all) the struggle was between a group of nobles and their supporters and the king. It was about who had power in the political system. The book is persuasive, and while thick with detail, avoids getting bogged down in it and losing the bigger picture . Library descriptions.

Fifty years, almost to the month, before the publication of John Adamson’s book, Hugh Trevor-Roper stated his intention to write what he knew would be ‘a very long book’, the most ambitious of his career, on the Puritan revolution of 17th-century England. The project went through many mutations over the next four years, but by 1961 it was virtually complete.

Simon Heffer: King V Parliament - The Noble Revolt: The Overthrow of Charles I by John Adamson. by John Adamson. 576 pp, Weidenfeld & Nicolson, £25. The year 1641 is one of English history's great turning-points. A bold group of disaffected peers has just petitioned King Charles for significant constitutional change, including the surrender of many of his prerogative rights, such as the appointment of senior officials and the raising of revenue through taxation. John Adamson's excellent book takes all the time it needs to set up the vastly complex web of influences. Quotations help to colour in the details of the picture, and provide a kind of immediacy - filled with rumour and doubt - that fixes us in the moment. This is no sleight of hand on Adamson's part, merely his reminder that the upheaval in Britain's power structures in these 20 remarkable months was far from inevitable.
The noble revolt is not only the best history book I've read in a long time, it's actually one of the best books of any kind I've read (2) in a long time. Adamson has achieved the almost incredible feat of writing a work of serious original historical scholarship that reads like a novel; so much so that I have no hesitation in recommending it to you even if you would never normally consider reading a book about early modern English political history
