Making available a selection of some of the most significant recent work on the Tudor Monarchy, this Reader gives a good sense of the issues that have preoccupied historians and of the ways in which the traditional concerns of power and politics have been enlarged by growing attention to less conventional facets of the subject, including the wider agenda of Renaissance statecraft, the phenomenon of female rule, the interdependence of Court and localities, and the significance of frontiers and borderlands in the shaping of Tudor political culture.
