The study is not another narrative of the events of the affair . Series: Cambridge Studies in Early Modern British History. Paperback: 336 pages.

The study is not another narrative of the events of the affair, but rather the "first full-length evaluation of the political significance of the Overbury scandal," which operates on several levels. The book succeeds on every level. Perhaps it is enough to say that this case study of a famous scandal is a model of historical scholarship with implications far beyond its focal subject, and that it is one of the most important works on the early Stuart period published in recent years.

Cambridge Studies in Early Modern British History). by. Alastair Bellany. The author almost completely ignores the scandal itself and instead focusses on how news of the Overbury murder was received by the country (the mechanisms of news dissemination in a pre-mass media environment; the political spin various competing factions were placing on the news, etc etc).

This is the first detailed study of the political significance of the seventeenth-century's most notorious and sensational court scandal--the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury. Insisting that images of the scandalous court had serious political importance, the book retells the tale of Overbury's rise to power, his fall and murder in 1613, and the public revelation of the murder two years later. The book examines the production and circulation of news about the scandal and assesses the political significance of contemporary depictions of the affair.
