Editorial Reviews

'The best full-length introductory history of the Tudor period ... Written with great verve, it will delight both the scholar and the general reader.' ¿ The Spectator 'Students of history owe Elton major debts. He has shown that political history is still worth investigation, that it offers the possibility of exciting discovery and genuine debate. He has demonstrated that scholarly work can be presented in prose that is witty, muscular, clear and above everything, readable.' ¿ The Times Education Supplement
