Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This is the third edition of what is considered the standard textbook on Tudor and Stuart Britain. A great deal of research has been done on this period since the second edition was published, and this third edition is fully updated to take account of all the recent developments in the area.

Roger Lockyer looks at the major themes of politics and religion and shows how the Tudors re-established a strong monarchy, building on foundations laid by their Yorkist predecessors. The accession of the Stuarts brought new strains as well as intensifying old ones, and the middle years of the seventeenth century saw the collapse of the monarchy and the temporary establishment of a republic in England. The book gives a clear view of the complex issues involved and an insight into their enduring popular interest.

In addition to detailed coverage of the main political and religious issues, this new edition contains expanded coverage of Ireland and Scotland and also of economic and social topics, including trade and industry, the structure of society, the treatment of the poor, and the role of women.

This revised and updated third edition of Tudor and Stuart Britain is the most up-to-date single volume survey of the subject. It provides students who are studying the Tudors and Stuarts for the first time with a clearly written and comprehensive introduction to the subject, and enables those already familiar with the period to bring themselves up to date with the latest interpretations.


Roger Lockyer has been both a schoolteacher and a university lecturer, having spent the greater part of his life teaching at Royal Holloway, University of London. His previous publications include The Early Stuarts: A Political History of England, 1603-1642, and James VI and Tudor Britain, 1485-1603, with Dan O¿Sullivan. He is also the author of a major biography: George Villiers, first Duke of Buckingham (1592-1628).

This is history the way it should be written. Clear and engaging narrative prose delivered with sound judgment and insight. This is essentially a text book, but one that makes me wish that I had been given such texts when I was in school. Although the book was obviously written for the layman and student, it is just as obviously a work by a scholar who knows his subject area inside out, and delights in getting it right.

This is a very well written history textbook. It does have the author's opinions and point of view, but that's no different than other historical texts. There are no maps or graphics, only text. I would recommend.
