The later Tudors : England, 1547-1603 by Penry Williams( Book )

40 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

This volume analyzes the structure and practice of the political and administrative institutions and processes of early modern England, more specifically, the Tudors. The House of Tudor was a prominent European royal house that ruled the Kingdom of England and its realms from 1485 until 1603. The author concentrates his study on describing the ways in which the Tudor government actually worked, the people who ran it, the impact that it made upon society, and the reasons for its long survival

Edward VI by Jennifer Loach( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jennifer Loach presents a substantially fresh portrait of the boy king. Far from being the sickly child of traditional history, he is depicted as a typical young aristocrat of his day, interested in hunting, tournaments and warfare, healthy and vigorous up to his final months. The cause of Edward's early death is here diagnosed as the consequence of a severe and rapid infection of the lungs, rather than the gradual process of tuberculosis." "The book explores Edward's life as prince and later king, analysing the events and politics of the time and the context of the royal court in his upbringing and his rule. It considers the extent to which the young king was himself involved in matters of state and assesses the governments of Edward Seymour, duke of Somerset, and of John Dudley, duke of Northumberland, both of whom ruled in his name. Loach questions the image of Edward as the 'godly imp' portrayed in John Foxe's Book of Martyrs, and advances the view that he was more concerned with obedience to his authority than with detailed points of doctrine." "This important and original book transforms our understanding of a dramatic period of British history, marked by political volatility, religious change and social unrest, and throws new light on an age often neglected by historians."--Jacket
Sir Walter Raleigh : in life and legend by Mark Nicholls( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Walter Raleigh is a figure writ large in popular imagination. Yet how can we understand this man who was soldier, voyager, visionary, courtier, politician, poet, historian, patriot and 'traitor'? Recent research has illuminated the context of his career at the Court of Elizabeth I, while much is still to be learned about Raleigh the man. Drawing on new texts of his poems, letters and travel narratives, Nicholls and Williams use Raleigh's own writings to explore his ideas, personality, feelings and values. No biography of Raleigh can be complete without an assessment of his posthumous reputation. Myths that accumulated around him tell us something about the man himself, but far more about the perceptions of his own and subsequent generations. Raleigh's talents as a writer ensured his positive legacy, but the appropriation of his legend for so many differing political uses has left us with a complex picture. Exploring how the many re-workings of Raleigh all touch on truth, Nicholls and Williams provide a new account of the life of this ever compelling figure. - Publisher

Elizabeth I by Joel Hurstfield( Recording )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabeth I ruled continuously for 44 years. In religion she was no fanatic. She feared Puritans more than Catholics, and moved against both from the 1850s, and executed them after trials. She was not interested in theology ; liturgy interested her more. Yet she was one of the greatest rulers in the history of England, and perhaps the most successful woman ever to rule in Europe
