Reign of Elizabeth I by John Guy
Book DescriptionThis book is about the politics and political culture of the 'last decade' of the reign of Elizabeth I, in effect the years 1585 to 1603. It argues that this period was so distinctive that it amounted to the second of two 'reigns'. It also invites readers, at times provocatively, to take a critical look at the declining Virgin Queen. Many teachers and their students have failed to consider the 'last decade' in its own right, or have ignored it, having begun their accounts in 1558 and struggled on to the defeat of the Armada in 1588. Only two major political surveys have been attempted since 1926. Both consider mainly the war with Spain and the politics of war, and each allots inadequate space to Crown patronage, puritanism and religion, society and the economy, political thought, and literature and drama. This book, written by some of the leading scholars of their generation, will be indispensable to a fuller understanding of the age.

Elizabeth, Hardback (May 2016)
In 1583 Elizabeth is fifty years old, past childbearing, but her greatest challenges are still to come: the Spanish Armada; the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots; relentless plotting among her courtiers. This title presents a portrait of her life and times that reveals a woman who is fallible, increasingly insecure, and struggling to lead Britain.
Indian Cotton Textiles, Hardback (November 2015)
Features the Indian dyed and painted cotton cloths in the Thakar Collection.
Henry VIII, Hardback (December 2014)» View all books by John Guy
Charismatic, insatiable and cruel, Henry VIII was a king who became mesmerized by his own legend - and in the process destroyed and remade England. In this book, the author looks behind the mask into Henry's mind to explore how he understood the world and his place in it.
