Making of the British Isles by Steven G. Ellis

Book Description

The history of the British Isles is the story of four peoples linked together by a process of state building that was as much about far-sighted planning and vision as coincidence, accident and failure. It is a history of revolts and reversal, familial bonds and enmity, the study of which does much to explain the underlying tension between the nations of modern day Britain. The Making of the British Islesrecounts the development of the nations of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland from the time of the Anglo-French dual monarchy under Henry VI through the Wars of the Roses, the Reformation crisis, the reigns of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, the Anglo-Scottish dynastic union, the British multiple monarchy and the Cromwellian Republic, ending with the acts of British Union and the Restoration of the Monarchy.

Defending English Ground by Steven G. Ellis Defending English Ground, Hardback (May 2015)

A key duty of the Renaissance monarchy was the defence of its subjects. This volume looks at what happened when the crown had to rely on local landowners for defence and border rule in the shires of Meath and Northumberland, and the differences in outcome between the two areas.

Tudor Frontiers and Noble Power by Steven G. Ellis Tudor Frontiers and Noble Power, Hardback (July 1995)

This work examines the Tudor government and the formation of the British state from the perspective of the borderlands which made up over half of English territory. It proposes that it was the frontiers, not lowland England, which provided the real test of Tudor statesmanship.
