These stories from the Star Chamber papers, first published in 1958, reveal the real, and sometimes comic, side of the functioning of the Star Chamber. They are valuable both for the ‘real life’ detail they bring to a historical concept, and for the light they throw on accepted historical generalizations.


'A combination of accurate and penetrating scholarship and imaginative and readable narrative’ – Time and Tide

'An almost faultless example of popularization that neither misleads the general reader nor disappoints the profession’ – Manchester Guardian
