Editorial Reviews

Review

“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)

I'm a returning college student and using this as a text for the study of the Tudor and Stuart reigns... it is concise and informal, with a definite sense of humor... debunks some of the myths relating to these reigns and definitely one of the more readable textbooks that I have come across... clear and consise..

I bought this book as a companion text for a Teaching Company course on the Tudors and Stuarts. To me both are superb. I am particularly interested in the foundational ideologies of the United States. The turmoil, political, social and religious discourse of the Tudor-Stuart period had great influence on the mindset and actions of our Founders.
The book is well written, accessible and meaningful to both amateur and professional scholars. The authors look at the "total history" of the period, including the lives of the common people as well as the maneuvering of the powerful elite.

Early Modern England 1485-1714 is a classroom textbook and a useful work for the person who wants a cursory study of England during the Tudor/Stuart era. The authors examine the political, religious, economic, and social history of England of the period. The reader who has little knowledge of English history can read the book and for the most part understand the events and the terminology. Because the work is cursory, the reader should be aware that there is little analysis, and some topics are hardly broached. For instance, the authors do not explain clearly why rich Catholics in the period from Henry VIII to Elizabeth were able to survive or get around the numerous laws and oaths that were enacted to constrict their religious beliefs or practices. The authors referred to the trade war with the Dutch (1654) over the Navigation Act in one sentence. Occasinally, the book is inconsistent. The authors state that Henry VII's total revenue in 1502 was 113,000 pounds. Four pages later they say that Henry VIII's revenue was 90,000 pounds without giving any explanation for the drop in revenue. Once in awhile terms, such as 'impositions', are introduced without any reference to meaning. The lay person can appreciate the book, but the more serious researcher will be prompted to refer to other sources.

Great book for a deeper introduction to the Early Modern Era in England. Personally had Newton Key as a professer in college and he was superb at bringing the material to light in a way that could make it personal. The book read better than most texts covering this information. Gives a great timeline and connection to events and people in the English EME. ~KLI

I loved the narrative of this book. I appreciated the contigency that is required in order to keep this book moving. The pictures and maps also helped give me a sense of location and feeling as I was reading about monarchy turnovers, life of peasants, warfare, and so much more!

reads like a novel, which can be good and can be bad. I was interested in learning a lot of factual information. This author uses a lot of phrases opening with "perhaps..." which signifies that the following information is opinion, albeit factually-based. This was just annoying to me. Most likely, you will enjoy this very much. It makes a seemingly boring topic, quite interesting and easy to follow.
