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.
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.
This is a significant reference book for the public library, as well as, a private collection.
A MUST READ.
