Reformation England 1480-1642 provides a clear and accessible narrative account of the English Reformation, explaining how historical interpretations of its major themes have changed and developed over the past few decades, where they currently stand - and where they seem likely to go. A great deal of interesting and important new work on the English Reformation has appeared recently, such as lively debates on Queen Mary's role, work on the divisive character of Puritanism, and studies on music and its part in the Reformation. The spate of new material indicates the importance and vibrancy of the topic, and also of the continued need for students and lecturers to have some means of orientating themselves among its thickets and by-ways. This revised edition takes into account new contributions to the subject and offers the author's expert judgment on their meaning and significance.

Editorial Reviews

This second edition has been expanded and rewritten, primarily to take account of the plethora of recent research on the is a necessary update, as a central consideration of this textbook is how historians have interpreted - and continue to interpret - the reform process. (The coverage of the secondary works is strikingly comprehensive.)...Students will find the historiographical elements of this book useful [and] the introductions and conclusions to each chapter...[It] retains its enviable position as an indispensable and thought-proviking textbook.
