Few periods of English history have been so subject to `revisionism' as the Tudors and Stuarts. This volume offers a full introduction to the complex historiographical debates currently raging about politics and religion in early modern England. It
* draws together thirteen articles culled from familiar and also less accessible sources
* embraces revisionist and counter-revisionist viewpoints
* combines controversial works on both politics and religion
* covers Tudor as well as early Stuart England
* includes helpful glossary, explanatory headnotes and suggestions for further reading.
These carefully edited and introduced essays draw on the new evidence of newsletters and ballads and ritual, as well as the more traditional sources, to offer a new and broader understanding of this transformative era of English history.
