From Our Editors

The Later Tudors tells the story of England between the accession of Edward VI and the death of Elizabeth I. The turbulent second half of the sixteenth century was a period of intense conflict between the nations of Europe, and between competing Catholic and Protestant beliefs. These struggles produced acute anxiety in England, but the nation was saved from the disasters that befell her neighbours and, by the end of Elizabeth's reign, had achieved a remarkable sense of political and religious identity. This masterly and comprehensive study explains how this process came about.
