There's something uniquely soothing and enlightening about listening to this excellent history of the long struggle for Catholic emancipation in Britain and Ireland under the reign of King George III and his successors. The issues are safely remote, rooted in ancient prejudices and interparty rivalries that are centuries removed from our own. Steven Crossley is a highly polished narrator, worthy of a position in any of the courts whose head buttings he so elegantly surveys. You may sometimes lose your bearings in this long progression of ministers, mistresses, and legislative maneuvers, but the very remoteness of Regency ecclesiastical politics is what makes this polished narrative so very engaging.
