A bold work. Challenging conventional scholarship, Boys makes a compelling case that war in Germany rather than civil war in England produced the first news serials and an informed public sphere. AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW One of the great merits of this book is the author's thoroughness and care in handling the material, but more important than this is the quiet way in which Boys sets about revolutionizing existing accounts of seventeenth-century news. EUROPEAN HISTORY QUARTERLY In addition to increasing our understanding of the development of English periodicals, the monograph also helps explain the fascination with and establishes the importance of international news in early Stuart England. SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY NEWS An absorbing study of printed news in Jacobean and Caroline England. HISTORY TODAY There is a veritable flood of information in this book. JOURNAL OF BRITISH STUDIES A densely written, fascinating, and colourful study with some intriguing illustrations. SIXTEENTH CENTURY JOURNAL A welcome addition on a much needed topic: the role of foreign news in the printed serial news publications in the early seventeenth century. RENAISSANCE QUARTERLY [A] carefully researched and well-argued volume. [It] is undoubtedly a very significant contribution to our understanding of the reporting of the Thirty Years War, and foreign news generally, in the early London periodical press.
