Early Modern England 14851714 is the first new survey of the TudorStuart period in a quarter century. Written by two leading scholars and experienced teachers of the subject, it assumes no prior knowledge of English history. The text is broken up with reader aids including maps, illustrations, and genealogies.The narrative shows how, under the Tudors and the Stuarts, England transformed itself from a feudal and relatively minor European state into a constitutional monarchy and the wealthiest and most powerful nation on Earth. The story of struggles over governmental and religious policies is enlivened by snapshots of how social and cultural changes affected ordinary English men and women. The authors also cover developments in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales that are relevant to English history.An introduction sets the scene, providing students with an overview of the physical and mental geography of early modern England. Opening and closing chapters explain how the events covered in the book fit into the course of English history.About the Author:
