The reign of Charles is usually viewed as being a period of decadence and frivolity; of fleshy, intelligent, sensual, earthy women, and effeminate, debauched but beautiful men resplendent in curly wigs. However, as always behind the facade of liberty, revelry and fun, the world was as dark, sinister and brutal as it had always been. In ‘Rebellion in the Reign of Charles II’, former intelligence officer and security adviser Julian Whitehead leads us to the murky underbelly of the English Restoration, a shady universe of espionage, oppression, conspiracy, scheming mistresses, power-hungry aristocrats, rebels and the all usual nefarious rogues and miscreants. Well researched, well written and very entertaining.
