Excerpt from Studies in Tudor History

My object in publishing this collection of studies in Tudor history is to present to the general student and reader some material connected with subjects which must be treated very briefly in the general histories of the period. The specialist will find little new in this volume, but I venture to hope that those for whom it is written will get a better insight into some of the complicated aims and intricate problems of sixteenth-century life. There is a general unity in the studies, which I may call the ideal of Tudor government. This ideal can be traced through the entire age, and it will serve to connect the studies.

In many cases I have ventured to differ from other writers on sixteenth-century history, and even from my own previous work. In all cases, however, I have conscientiously re-worked the materials, and my conclusions have been arrived at independently, as an outcome of this re-working. In addition, I have done my utmost to lift the book out of the atmosphere of controversy which has unfortunately gathered round Tudor history.
