Kingship and politics in the reign of Edward VI by Stephen Alford( Book )

25 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a reappraisal of the kingship and politics of the reign of Edward VI, the third Tudor king of England who reigned from the age of nine in 1547 until his death in 1553. The reign has often been interpreted as a period of political instability, mainly because of Edward's age, but this account challenges the view that the king's minority was a time of unstable political faction. It shows how Edward was shaped and educated from the start for adult kingship, and how Edwardian politics evolved to accommodate a maturing and able young king." "The book also explores the political values of the men around the king, and tries to reconstruct the relationships of family and association that bound together the governing elite in the king's Council, his court, and in the universities. It also assesses the impact of Edward's reign on Elizabethan politics, both conceptually (the notion of what it was to be a monarch) and practically (the importance in Elizabeth's reign of men who had already shaped Edwardian politics)."--Jacket
London's triumph : merchants, adventurers, and money in Shakespeare's city by Stephen Alford( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the sixteenth century, England was being transformed economically by the astonishing discoveries of the New World and of direct sea routes to Asia. At the start of the century, London was a gloomy, introverted medieval city. But as the century progressed, London was placed at the center of the world stage. Alford brings to life the network of merchants, visionaries, crooks, and sailors who changed London and England forever. As English ships were suddenly found all over the world, the people who made this possible are as interesting as any of those at court

London's triumph : merchants, adventurers, and money in Shakespeare's city by Stephen Alford( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Life in Europe was fundamentally changed in the 16th century by the astonishing discoveries of the New World and of direct sea routes to Asia. To start with England was hardly involved and London remained a gloomy, introverted medieval city. But as the century progressed something extraordinary happened. Stephen Alford's evocative, original and fascinating new book uses the same skills that made his widely praised The Watchers so successful, bringing to life the network of merchants, visionaries, crooks and sailors who changed London forever. In a sudden explosion of energy English ships were suddenly found all over the world - trading with Russia and the Levant, exploring Virginia and the Arctic, and fanning out across the Indian Ocean. London's Triumph is above all about the people who made this possible - the families, the guild members, the money-men who were willing to risk huge sums and sometimes their own lives in pursuit of the rare, exotic and desirable. Their ambitions fuelled a new view of the world - initiating a long era of trade and empire, the consequences of which we still live with today --
