The Tudor age was a tumultuous one – a time of the Reformation, conspiracies, uprisings and rebellions.

The Tudor Rebellions gives a chronological run-down of the major rebellions and throws light on some of the main themes of Tudor history, including the dynasty’s attempt to bring the north and west under the control of the capital, the progress of the English Reformation and the impact of inflation, taxation and enclosure on society.

Successive versions of Tudor Rebellions have been central to understanding Tudor politics since 1968, when Anthony Fletcher first published his book. Now nearly four decades later, Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch has once more thoroughly revised and expanded this classic text to take into account exciting and innovative work on the subject in recent years.

From the Back Cover:

Thoroughly revised and expanded by Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch, this classic text now takes into account the exciting and innovative work done on Tudor England in recent years. 

Written in a clear and accessible manner, the book:

  • Gives a thorough account of the successive rebellions from the reign of King Henry VII through to the death of Queen Elizabeth in 1603
  • Seeks to understand why Tudor people rebelled and what sort of people were inclined to do so
  • Draws attention to ‘high’ and ‘low’ politics and takes seriously the political concerns of the humble and unprivileged alongside the nobility and gentry
  • Provides a new account of the multiple disturbances of 1549: which now emerge as far more widespread and varied than was previously apparent

Also including a selection of primary source documents, Chronology, Who’s Who of key figures and a full colour plate section, Tudor Rebellions provides an invaluable chronological account and analysis of the rebellions that affected the Kingdom of England between 1485 and 1603.
