Description - Taxation Under the Early Tudors 1485-1547 by Roger S. Schofield

Based on original research, this book marks an important advance in our understanding not only of the fiscal resources available to the English crown but also of the broader political culture of early Tudor England. This book presents an original study of taxation under the early Tudors. It explains the significance of the parliamentary lay taxation levied on individuals at this time. It demonstrates the value of the mass of personal tax assessments from this period to social, economic and local historians. It considers the critical position that parliamentary taxation occupies in constitutional history. It sheds light on the political conditions and attitudes prevalent in England under the early Tudors.
