This compact reference is a wonderfully useful companion to all 16th C. readings, including fiction. It's interesting to read on its own - with a broad range of information. Each entry is self explanitory, which makes any search easier than can be possible in most chronologies. As far as I know, this is the only work of its kind and I look forward to one by this author, devoted to the 17th C and the 18th C.

As one begins to study the Elizabethan era, issues arise which require study. Examples include:

1-How did Elizabeth maintain order and power. The Elizabethan period was not all peaches and cream. Elizabeth had many enemies, from Queen Mary and the Pope, to France and Spain. To maintain order, she retained Francis Walsingham to organize a network of spies and informers. The organization Walsingham created is the precursor of M15, the OSS and the CIA.

2-How did Elizabeth maintain political popularity among her subjects. One method was to visit the hinterlands and build goodwill. These visits were called a Progress, and Elizabeth used them effectively.

Ms. Mosher's meticulous Chronology is a starting point to study and understanding these and other topics which highlight the Elizabethan era.

"People and their Contexts" is an invaluable reference for scholar and layman alike, which opens a window on the treasures of the Renaissance world. Crammed with curious and fascinating facts from every field of human endeavour, it's also a wonderful book for browsing in. For those interested in the bigger picture, a masterly preface from the author gives a bird's eye view of the entire 16th century. Thoroughly recommended.

An extraordinary collection of 16th century information!

Beautifully constructed and an easy read. Each year is divided into 5 sections - Geography, Politics, Religion, Literature and

the Arts, and Science/Education - which makes fact finding both enjoyable and entertaining.

This chronology would make a wonderful and useful addition to

anyone's reference library.
