Contents: Sir James Stewart of Goodtrees (1635-1713) was a Scottish lawyer, political opponent of the Stuarts, and reforming Lord Advocate of Scotland.
This work, first published anonymously, is now attributed to Stewart and the Covenanter minister James Stirling, with Stewart supplying the legal portion. It defended the Pentland Rising of 1666, in the context of the repression of the Presbyterians since 1660.
