Successive versions of Tudor Rebellions have been central to understanding Tudor politics since 1968, when Anthony Fletcher first published his book. Now nearly four decades later, Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch has once more thoroughly revised and expanded this classic text to take into account exciting and innovative work on the subject in recent years.

Written in a clear and accessible manner, the book:

  • gives a thorough account of the successive rebellions from the reign of King Henry VII through to the death of Queen Elizabeth in 1603
  • seeks to understand why Tudor people rebelled and what sort of people were inclined to do so
  • draws attention to ¿high¿ and ¿low¿ politics and takes seriously the political concerns of the humble and unprivileged alongside the nobility and gentry
  • provides a new account of the multiple disturbances of 1549: which now emerge as far more widespread and varied than was previously apparent

Also including a selection of primary source documents, Chronology and Who¿s Who of key figures, Tudor Rebellions provides an invaluable chronological account and analysis of the rebellions which affected the Kingdom of England between 1485 and 1603.

Anthony Fletcher was formerly a Professor of History at the University of Essex. Diarmaid MacCulloch is a Fellow of St. Cross College and Professor of the History of the Church at Oxford University.
