In 1624 James I invited Parliament to discuss issues of war and peace, setting a precedent which would make yet another inroad into the prerogatives of the crown. The "Happy Parliament" turned against the peace-loving King and supported war with Spain. Robert Ruigh presents an absorbing narrative of the proceedings between Parliament and the crown and their far-reaching consequences.
