Product Details


“A fine survey of the Tudor century. Brigden aims to tell the story “to those who don’t know it already,” and she succeeds brilliantly. She’s very strong on politics and religion, but also has fascinating discursions of the intellectual life, from More’s Utopia to Marlowe’s Faustus.” —David Underdown, Yale University

“Susan Brigden has done a brilliant job of giving us a fresh approach to the Tudor period. Although accessible to students, it will also interest established scholars.” —Stanford Lehmberg, University of Minnesota, Emeritus
