Later Tudors by Penry Williams

Book Description

The Later Tudors is an authoritative and comprehensive study of England between the accession of Edward VI and the death of Elizabeth I-a turbulent period of conflict amongst European nations, and between warring Catholics and Protestants. These internal and external struggles created anxiety in England, but by the end of Elizabeth's reign the nation had achieved a remarkable sense of political and religious identity. Penry Williams combines the political, religious and economic history of the nation with a broader analysis of English society, family relations, and culture, in order to explain the workings and development of the English state. The result is an incisive and wide-ranging analysis that culminates in an assessment of England's part in the shaping of the New World.

Sir Walter Raleigh by Penry Williams Sir Walter Raleigh, Hardback (January 2011)

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » The 16th century in England was marked by turbulence, violence and disruption: harvest failures, rising rural poverty, religious strife. This, plus war and the threat of foreign invasion, tested the skill and tenacity of late-Tudor government to the limit. And yet, by the end of the century, the nation had attained a remarkable sense of political and religious unity and even a degree of political stability. This masterly and comprehensive new study of the period shows how that came about. (Kirkus UK)
