Most widely held works by Christopher Haigh
The Cambridge historical encyclopedia of Great Britain and Ireland by Christopher Haigh( Book )

37 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 1,839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of Britain and Ireland is traditionally presented as a succession of dramatic changes, but in this reference work the reader will find instead an emphasis on the patterns of continuity. The sixty contributors have concerned themselves with political structures and social and economic forces, rather than with the highlights of ancient chronicles and more recent upheavals. The familiar outlines and landmarks of the past nevertheless remain: the Encyclopedia consists of seven chronological sections from prehistory to the present decade, completed by a biographical Who's Who. Each section is introduced with a survey or Overview describing the major features and trends of the period. Specialist articles follow, which interpret developments in the context of each of the following topics: Government and Politics; Warfare and International Relations; Economy, Society (including living conditions); Culture (including education). The interpretative articles are illustrated not only with specific visual records, buildings and portraiture, but also with representations of dress, housing, transport, and everyday objects, intended to give the reader as vivid a feeling as possible for each period consulted. Maps and genealogies are included wherever they are helpful

English reformations : religion, politics, and society under the Tudors by Christopher Haigh( Book )

23 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christopher Haigh's study disproves any assumption that the triumph of Protestantism was inevitable, and goes beyond the surface of official political policy to explore the religious views and practices of ordinary English people. With the benefit of hindsight, other historians have traced the course of the Reformation as a series of events inescapably culminating in the creation of the English Protestant establishment. Haigh sets out to recreate the sixteenth century as a time of excitement and insecurity, with each new policy or ruler causing the reversal of earlier religious changes. --From publisher's description

The Elizabethan Age is arguably that greatest in English history. Furthermore it is not something dead and apart from us: it is alive and all around us. England contains the visible memorials of Elizabethan society: the houses they built; the objects they cherished; the patterns they imposed upon the very landscape. Rowse's classic study is a detailed account of that society and tradition from the lowest social class to the men and women who governed the realm. This reissue of Rowse's famously vivid portrayal of the Elizabethan world is complemented by a major introduction from Christopher Haigh which offers both a reflection on Rowse's masterpiece and an assessment of the Elizabethan Age
