Overview

Two centuries of dramatic change are covered by this exciting and richly illustrated new work. Eighteen leading scholars explore the political, social, religious, and cultural history of the period when monarchs based in south-east England strove to extend their authority over the whole of the British Isles.

This turbulent age saw the magnificence of the Tudor sovereigns and the horrors of religious persecution, the convulsions of civil war and the brittle assertiveness of the Restoration of the Court. From monarchs to ordinary men and women, the book explores the profound changes taking place in beliefs, power structures, and ways of life throughout Britain.
