Stories of plots, sham plots, and the citizen-informers who
discovered them are at the center of Rachel Weil's compelling study
of the turbulent decade following the Revolution of 1688. Most
studies of the Glorious Revolution focus on its causes or long-term
effects, but Weil instead zeroes in on the early years when the
survival of the new regime was in doubt. By encouraging informers,
imposing loyalty oaths, suspending habeas corpus, and delaying the
long-promised reform of treason trial procedure, the Williamite
regime protected itself from enemies and cemented its bonds with
supporters, but also put its own credibility at risk.
