Samenvatting

The new, fully-updated edition of the popular introduction to the Tudor-Stuart period—offers fresh scholarship and improved readability.


Early Modern England 1485-1714 is the market-leading introduction to the Tudor-Stuart period of English history. This accessible and engaging volume enables readers to understand the political, religious, cultural, and socio-economic forces that propelled the nation from small feudal state to preeminent world power. The authors, leading scholars and teachers in the field, have designed the text for those with little or no prior knowledge of the subject. The book's easy-to-follow narrative explores the world the English created and inhabited between the 15th and 18th centuries.


This new edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest scholarship on the subject, such as Henry VIII's role in the English Reformation and the use of gendered language by Elizabeth I. A new preface addresses the theme of periodization, while revised chapters offer fresh perspectives on proto-industrialization in England, economic developments in early modern London, merchants and adventurers in the Middle East, the popular cultural life of ordinary people, and more. Offering a lively, reader-friendly narrative of the period, this text:

  • Offers a wide-ranging overview of two and half centuries of English history in one volume

  • Highlights how social and cultural changes affected ordinary English people at various stages of the time period

  • Explores how the Irish, Scots, and Welsh affected English history

  • Features maps, charts, genealogies and illustrations throughout the text

  • Includes access to a companion website containing online resources




Early Modern England 1485-1714 is an indispensable resource for undergraduate students in early modern England courses, as well as students in related fields such as literature and Renaissance studies.

Recensie(s)

Scholars and students who want to begin to master early modern England need look no further. Bucholz and Key's book is the text to study and know. It is difficult to convey how useful this text is-from its concise prose to its useful charts and graphs to its glossary and select bibliography, Bucholz and Key have done an admirable job. ( Scholars' Book Talk , March 2009) Praise for the first edition: This excellent book is consciously designed for students in North American universities who are studying this period for the first time, but its qualities are such that British students will find it a remarkably effective and well-sustained synthesis. The narrative is readable, fluent and balanced ... Throughout, the authors, both of whom are vastly experienced teachers as well as being active research scholars, have managed to delineate detail effectively without obscuring the narrative flow ... It is, as they say in their conclusion, 'a terrific story', and they have told it terrifically well. ( History ) Complementing its accessibility, Early Modern England is comprehensive and true to recent scholarly conclusions. Bucholz and Key have produced a useful narrative for the present generation of those being introduced to English history in the period. It is engaging from first to last and merits close review by faculty across the United States seeking a strong classroom text. ( Albion ) Robert Bucholz and Newton Key have written Early Modern England, 1485-1714: A Narrative History to fill the need for an authoritative, one volume textbook covering the Tudor and Stuart eras that is written especially for an American audience. They have succeeded in their goal. ( H-Albion ) Early Modern England is informative and a pleasure to read. ( Sixteenth Century Journal )
