England Under the Tudors


First published in 1955 and never out of print, this wonderfully written text by one of the great historians of the twentieth century has guided generations of students through the turbulent history of Tudor England.

Now in its third edition, England Under the Tudors charts a historical period that saw some monumental changes in religion, monarchy, government and the arts. Elton's classic and highly readable introduction to the Tudor period offers an essential source of information from the start of Henry VII's reign to the death of Elizabeth I.

Sir geoffrey Elton was Regius Professor Emeritus of Modern History at the University of Cambridge and a fellow of Clare College


'The best full-length introductory history of the Tudor period ... Written with great verve, it will delight both the scholar and the general reader.' - The Spectator 'Students of history owe Elton major debts. He has shown that political history is still worth investigation, that it offers the possibility of exciting discovery and genuine debate. He has demonstrated that scholarly work can be presented in prose that is witty, muscular, clear and above everything, readable.' - The Times Education Supplement
