A useful book for anyone interested in this important part of the historical English justice system. Although the book concentrates on the Elizabethan period, there are details about the court in other times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money tablet, 10 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
works well - more responsive that the 4 core tablet I had previously. Runs Android 5.5.1 and the new version of Android looks similar enough to 4.4 for me to find everything. Display is good for what I use this tablet for.

Appears to be well constructed and was supplied with a screen protector in place.

4.0 out of 5 stars good top down overview of 19th C Britain, 27 April 2015

a good top down overview of 19th C Britain. Good on the politics but very brief on other topics such as education, social history and transport.

4.0 out of 5 stars works for me, but ..., 27 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my Polatab Q10.1 tablet as the previous case I bought had broken and the tablet kept slipping down inside the case.
For me this case works. It appears more robust than the previous case and the four corner straps solve the problem with slipping.
However the straps do cover the cameras and the power button. The power button is still usable so that's fine but the cameras are not usable but I never use them so that is fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars dated but interesting, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Johnny Mnemonic [1996] [DVD] (DVD)
The special affects are dated and Keanu Reeves does what he does in every film but it's interesting because of the involvement of William Gibson. Until the long awaited Nuromancer film appears there are few film representations of Gibson's view of the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars vital for historians, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A vital resource for historians and history students. Acts of parliament are referred to by reginal year and this book makes translating that to calendar year easy. Knowing when saints days were in specific years is also very handy.

The introduction and notes are a clear explanation of changes in calendars and dates.

5.0 out of 5 stars one for the fans, 12 Mar. 2014
The notes are comprehensive and interesting on the background to the album.
The comments from each band member on each track are illuminating.
I think the Steve Wilson remix makes the guitars a lot clearer and I like it.
Six versions of 'Teacher' is too many.

One for fans and collectors.

5.0 out of 5 stars need cruise liner sized speakers to play this properly, 26 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 13 (Audio CD)
To play this CD properly first plug in your cruise liner sized speakers. Set the stereo so that everything is louder than everything else then turn the volume up to 11 out of 10 :-)

Some awesome guitar playing by Tony Iommi.

Vocals from the Prince of Darkness seem to take a little while to get going but it's worth the wait.

Geezer Butler doing a floor shaking job on bass.

The drummers manage to keep up the high standard set by the rest of the band.

Do listen to the lyrics :-)

Several tracks are reminiscent of other Black Sabbath songs so it's a bit like a best of compilation at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE book to get on this topic, 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want to understand how parliament worked during the first part of the Elizabethan Era then this is the book to get.

I was surprised to note how much of the passage of a Bill through parliament is still the same today.

The English Parliament was developing rapidly during this time so this is an important time in this history of parliament.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent review of modern research, 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
if you are seriously interested in the 16/17 century witchcraft trials then you should get this book. It contains articles by all the major researchers and the second edition brings the book up to date with articles from the current century.

The articles cover a wide range of topics.. This is a book which takes a while to read but is well worth the time. The bibliography is very useful for further research.
