The Later Tudors Summary

The Later Tudors: England 1547-1603 by Penry Williams (Emeritus Fellow, Emeritus Fellow, New College, Oxford)

The Later Tudors is an authoritative and comprehensive study of England between the accession of Edward VI and the death of Elizabeth I-a turbulent period of conflict amongst European nations, and between warring Catholics and Protestants. These internal and external struggles created anxiety in England, but by the end of Elizabeth's reign the nation had achieved a remarkable sense of political and religious identity. Penry Williams combines the political, religious and economic history of the nation with a broader analysis of English society, family relations, and culture, in order to explain the workings and development of the English state. The result is an incisive and wide-ranging analysis that culminates in an assessment of England's part in the shaping of the New World.
