Henry Stubbe was a physician and controversialist. He was one of the most vocal critics of the new philosophy, claiming that it was a Catholic plot. This work provides a justification of the unpopular Third Dutch War (1672-4) in which England was in alliance with Catholic France against the Protestant Dutch. It is a typical example of a controversialist political tract.
