Overview

Thoroughly revised and expanded by Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch, this classic text now takes into account the exciting and innovative work done on Tudor England 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, Who's Who of key figures and a full colour plate section, Tudor Rebellions provides an invaluable chronological account and analysis of the rebellions that affected the Kingdom of England between 1485 and 1603.
