Description of this Book

This book provides an overview of the rule of the Tudor monarchs Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary Tudor and Elizabeth I. In particular it analyses the changing role of the English monarchy in government and its impact on society from the reign of Edward VI to the death of Elizabeth I. Topics covered include relations between England and the rest of the British Isles and Europe, domestic policy and the influence of the church. Using a wide range of primary sources, John McGurk presents a critical survey of the main issues relating to this important and eventful period in British history. He draws on key aspects of the continuing debate on the monarchy in the British Isles to show how our views are influenced both by the discovery of new sources and by the perspectives provided by ongoing historical revision.
