Kirsteen M. MacKenzie, The Solemn League and Covenant of the Three Kingdoms and the Cromwellian Union, 1643–1663

Kirsteen MacKenzie’s monograph, based on her insightful doctoral thesis, is a valuable contribution to the recently burgeoning literature on the constellation of religious attitudes during the British Civil Wars.
